W.E.B.杜博斯及1900年的巴黎展览会

巴黎展览会是一项强而有力的证据,它证明了非裔美国人是美国社会中一个重要且具生产力的民族。但即使自奴隶时期以来,他们的生活及身份已经有了非常多的改善,州政府及联邦法院对非裔美国人的投票权及任公职权仍有诸多限制。在全国各地,仍有许多人因其肤色而受伤或被杀;更甚者,有更多的非裔美国人被学校及工作排除在外,遭受不公平待遇。1900年代的前十年,W.E.B.杜博斯及其他人了解他们需要更强而有力的措施来确保他的人民享有完整的权益。通过这个展览会、他的写作及言论,杜博斯将其一身贡献在对抗不平等的种族待遇。

The Paris Exhibition was powerful evidence that African Americans were an important, productive part of American society. But even though they had made great gains since the end of slavery, state and federal courts were preventing many African Americans from voting and holding office. All over the country, people were being hurt and killed because of the color of their skin. And even more African Americans were being unfairly excluded from schools and jobs. In the first decade of the 1900s, W.E.B. Du Bois and others saw the need for stronger measures to ensure full rights for his people. Through this exhibit, his writings and talks, Du Bois devoted his life to fighting inequality among the races.
