Abstract / Excerpt
With "Booker T. Washington and Others" out of the way, Du Bois establishes a legacy of masculinist leadership based on the potency of intellect that, as Carby goes on to argue, we still live with today. In a search for black leadership that can not only explain "how it feels to be a problem," but also manages to "attain self-conscious manhood, to merge his double self into a truer and better self," Du Bois finds no one other than himself sufficiently representative, or "racial" and masculine, to do the job (Du Bois, SBF 365).
