Sample text

If Du Bois’ position entailed a rejection of the existing capitalist economics and culture as soulless, exploitative, and cruel, Washington thought the New Negro would be heavily grounded in the principles of the capitalist–entrepreneur model. An interesting assertion here is the idea that Washington, too, was an intellectual, though of a different sort, plus the fact that he saw himself in opposition to intellectual types. But he was clearly an organizational and bureaucratic intellectual. What sets them apart had nothing to do with their respective desires to create the New Man (New Person), but rather the divergent roads each saw as making it possible to achieve that goal.

Again, it is important to note that the interracial contacts were engaged in by blacks of all classes, but the whites engaging in this contact were generally from the middle and upper classes and generally among the social and cultural elites, for it must be remembered that during this era and for many years afterward, New York was a segregated city, and as the history of clubs in Harlem and downtown New York illustrated, black performers could perform, but were not welcome or permitted in the audience as customers.

Unless black intellectuals of this new century are so much different from previous generations of intellectuals, there is little reason to despair. Old issues will remain such as the need to balance the individual’s need for selfenrichment and the community’s need for collective social action. This was the great message and challenge hurled to intellectuals by Du Bois. Cruse took black intellectuals into the murky politics of Harlem and New York City, and his discussion of ‘‘the crisis’’ became an enduring class contradiction from which many intellectuals thought they could not, or would not recover.
