    How did/should black Americans respond to Jim Crow?

    Read the articles from the previous readings  (Booker T. Washington’s “Atlanta Exposition” and W.E.B. DuBois’s “Souls of Black Folk.”)

    Write two paragraphs (one for each man/document). Each paragraph should address the following:

    1. What is the author’s argument? What should black Americans do in response to the onset of Jim Crow laws?
    2. Briefly summarize why each man feels that way. What are his reasons for suggesting what he does?
