Booker T. Washington was a pragmatist (realist) who wanted what he thought was the best he could get in terms of concessions for blacks.  So he attended the Atlanta Conference of Governors in 1895 and basically agreed to the idea of segregation once he got assurances that more money was coming for black schools.  He in essence accepted second class citizenship for blacks. DuBois was furious.  No one had elected Washington to any office, or to speak on behalf of what all blacks would accept.  He thought Washington was a sell out that left America’s blacks under Jim Crow laws for six decades.  DuBois wanted nothing less than full equality legally and socially, as the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments entitled them to.
