Excerpt from The Souls of Black Folk: Essays and Sketches
But the facing Of so vast a prejudice could not but bring the inevitable self-questioning, self-dispar agement, and lowering of ideals which ever accompany repression and breed in an atmosphere of contempt and hate. Whisperings and portents came borne upon the four winds: Lo! We are diseased and dying, cried the dark hosts; we cannot write, our voting is vain; what need of education, since we must always cook and serve? And the Nation echoed and enforced this self-criticism, saying: Be~ eentent to be servants, and 'nothing more; what need-of higher culture-for~ half men? Away with the black man's ballot, by force or fraud, and behold the suicide Of a race Neverthe less, out of the evil came something of good, the more careful adjustment of education to real life, the clearer perception of the Negroes' social responsibili ties, and the sobering realization of the meaning of progress.

William Edward Burghardt "W. E. B." Du Bois (February 23, 1868 – August 27, 1963) was an American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, writer and editor. Born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, Du Bois grew up in a relatively tolerant and integrated community. After completing graduate work at the University of Berlin and Harvard, where he was the first African American to earn a doctorate, he became a professor of history, sociology and economics at Atlanta University. Du Bois was one of the co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.
