Booker T. Washington Delivers the

 

1895 Atlanta Compromise Speech

 

September 18, 1895,

 

Read the following speech from Dubois and answer the

 

questions.

 

A ship lost at sea for many days suddenly sighted a friendly

 

vessel. From the mast of the unfortunate vessel was seen a

 

signal,“Water, water; we die of thirst!” The answer from the

 

friendly vessel at once came back, “Cast down your bucket

 

where you are.” A second time the signal, “Water, water;

 

send us water!” ran up from the distressed vessel, and was

 

answered, “Cast down your bucket where you are.” And a

 

third and fourth signal for water was answered, “Cast down

 

your bucket where you are.” The captain of the distressed

 

vessel, at last heeding the injunction, cast down his bucket,

 

and it came up full of fresh, sparkling water from the mouth

 

of the Amazon River. To those of my race who depend on

 

bettering their condition in a foreign land or who

 

underestimate the importance of cultivating friendly

 

relations with the Southern white man, who is their next-

 

door neighbor, I would say: “Cast down your bucket where

 

you are”— cast it down in making friends in every manly

 

way of the people of all races by whom we are surrounded.

 

Cast it down in agriculture, mechanics, in commerce, in

 

domestic service, and in the professions. And in this

 

connection it is well to bear in mind that whatever other

 

sins the South may be called to bear, when it comes to

 

business, pure and simple, it is in the South that the Negro

 

is given a man’s chance in the commercial world, and in

 

nothing is this Exposition more eloquent than in

 

emphasizing this chance. Our greatest danger is that in the

 

great leap from slavery to freedom we may overlook the

 

fact that the masses of us are to live by the productions of

 

our hands, and fail to keep in mind that we shall prosper in

 

proportion as we learn to dignify and glorify common

 

labour, and put brains and skill into the common

 

occupations of life; shall prosper in proportion as we learn

 

to draw the line between the superficial and the substantial,

 

the ornamental gewgaws of life and the useful. No race can

 

prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a

 

field as in writing a poem. It is at the bottom of life we

 

must begin, and not at the top. Nor should we permit our

 

grievances to overshadow our opportunities.

 

To those of the white race who look to the incoming of

 

those of foreign birth and strange tongue and habits for the

 

prosperity of the South, were I permitted I would repeat

 

what I say to my own race,“Cast down your bucket where

 

you are.” Cast it down among the eight millions of Negroes

 

whose habits you know, whose fidelity and love you have

 

tested in days when to have proved treacherous meant the

 

ruin of your firesides. Cast down your bucket among these

 

people who have, without strikes and labour wars, tilled

 

your fields, cleared your forests, builded your railroads and

 

Paragraph 1:

 

What does Washington suggest African Americans do to

 

improve social relations?

 

Paragraph 2:

 

In what world does Washington believe progress can be

 

made for African Americans?

 

What should African Americans take pride in?

 

Paragraph 3:

 

Read Washington’s message to the white race.

 

Rewrite this

 

in your own words.

 

What is he asking them to do?

 

What is

 

his message?
