Blog Entry #1 African American Political Thought

I found this morning's discussion to be very interstice. One thing in particular is that none of the four leaders in the African American community were totally stagnant in their views. Their views were molded by the times in which they lived and their ideas changed as events around them also changed. The fact that Washington stayed in the South obviously had an effect on his views while DuBois, who was raised and lived in the northeast was probably more willing to push forward in a more militant way, maybe because he had not seen the degree of racism and hate that was in the south. The final item of interest was the overall concept of how Dr. Wintz categorized the four men's thoughts (Randolph=labor, Garvey=Nationalism etc. etc.)
