THE NIAGARA MOVEMENT:
THE EARLY BATTLE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS

The Niagara Movement: The Early Battle for Civil Rights explores Black intellectual society at the turn of the century, a class rarely presented. It examines the heated debate among Black elite on how to best uplift the race. It captures the conflict between Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. DuBois who found themselves on opposite sides of how to secure equality for their community.
