Hello and welcome to African Elements.
In this episode, Unity In Diversity? We saw in Episode 10 two approaches to the
problems facing African Americans as a result of the failures of Reconstruction. The
integrationist and the Black Nationalist approaches were fundamentally in opposition to one another
and the conflict between WEB DuBois and Booker T. Washington was simply built in to
their philosophical ideologies. In part two, we will explore other ideological
approaches. Just like integration and Black Nationalism, the approach to problems in the 1920s
and 1930s are each going to have their own set of strength and weaknesses. As we also see,
they carry with them their own built in conflicts with other philosophical approaches. Can
there be unity in diversity? All that, coming up next.
