Chapter Summary

In this essay, DuBois states clearly that he appeals to a larger &t;human brotherhood&t; and &t;common humanity&t;. A central theme in both Souls and black newspapers was the expansion of community through black migration and through the increasing diversity of black culture. Class solidarity with &t;all working people&t; is a theme that runs through the pages of the northern press, and this often is made concrete in terms of immigrant groups, as can be noted from expressions as &t;as Jews are persecuted, so are Blacks&t;; &t;the Chinese share the same despicable housing that we do.&t;.No other minority group is discussed as much in the pages of black papers as the Jews, and this with a tone of both ambivalence and familiarity. At the end of the chapter, DuBois describes John's musings while sitting on a tree stump by the ocean.

Keywords: ambivalence; Diasporic; DuBois; human brotherhood; migration; tree stump; Unveiling Project
