Both ex-slave W.E.B. DuBois and twentieth century author Richard Wright assess the nature of race relations in their respective eras and the desire on the part of blacks to become more a part of American society. The paper shows that both see education as a key element in the advancement of the black population, but they also see a number of obstacles even for those who have attained an education.

From the Paper:

"It is clear that most groups within America want to be part of American society in some way and do not want to remain separate. They yearn for inclusion but may find rejection or the placing of obstacles in their path. The groups experiencing the greatest difficulty in being included may be those of a different race from the majority. Blacks have been at a particular disadvantage because racial differences stand out and make it that much easier for members of this group to be discriminated against and marked for exclusion from full participation in America society. The writings of ex-slaves such as W.E.B. DuBois showed both the underlying desire on the part of blacks to be included and to have full rights and the obstacles they encountered in trying to attain this goal."
