the attitude of the imprissoned by WEB du Bois

“The attitudes of an imprisoned” group could take one of three forms:

  1. a feeling of revolt and revenge;
  2. an attempt to adjust all thought and action to the will of the greater groups;
  3. or, a determined attempt at self-development, self-realization, in spite of envisioning discouragements and prejudice”

W.E.B. Du Bois (African American scholar and activist)
