“Of the million black youth, same were fitted to know and some to dig; some had the talent and capacity of university men, and some had the talent and capacity of blacksmiths; and true training meant neither that all should be college men nor all artisans. How foolish to ask what is the best education for one or seven or sixty million souls! Shall we teach them trades, or train them in liberal arts? Neither and both: teach the workers to work and the thinkers to think; make carpenters of carpenters, and philosophers of philosophers.”

– WEB Dubois
