In this American world the Negro has been seen as lost and forgotten For this reason the world yields him no true self-consciousness but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world The two ideals of the Negro is that of his color and the struggle of attaining his self-conscious manhood He simply wants to be seen by society as an individual and not judged by race Thus throughout history since Emancipation the black mans progression has been weak due to white society shaping his every move Nevertheless the success of the Negro has driven many important and intellectual figures For example Booker T Washington Marcus Garvey Alain Locke and others have provided a clear path for the success of African-Americans in a society of prejudice ignorance and narrow-mindedness Booker T Washington bestowed a definite programme of industrial education conciliation of the South and submission to civil and political rights for Negroes He founded Tuskegee which also provided support for Negroes to a substantial education that southern whites would not allow them to have However criticism came from both the North and the South in relation to Washingtons counsels of submission which overtook certain elements of true manhood and that his educational programme was unneccessarily narrow The influence of this opinion did not prevent the achievement of Negroes in education civil rights and political power Another example was Marcus Garvey a black activist who encouraged American blacks and others of African heritage to unify for the common good He established the United Negro Improvement Association UNIA in 1918-1919 in order to influence the movement of race solidarity For this reason Garveys philosophy marked a radical departure from the traditionally acceptable Civil Rights posture of political and financial equality
