        Walter White versus W.E.B. Du Bois

        In an effort to respond to the economic crisis of the Depression, President Roosevelt, to the dismay of the N.A.A.C.P., put civil rights on the back burner. This strategy was unacceptable to W.E.B. Du Bois, editor of The Crisis, the journal of the N.A.A.C.P. Du Bois asserted that since F.D.R.’s “New Deal” would not assist African Americans, they should instead find their own solutions to poverty and injustice. This video from The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow highlights one of Du Bois’ most controversial ideas -- support for segregated schools -- and N.A.A.C.P. executive secretary, Walter White’s angry response.
