2. Consider the key themes of self-reliance, race, identity, and education that Obama, Du Bois, and Washington discuss. Then write a 700-900 word essay addressing 3 of those themes and answering the question: Are Barack Obama''s views more closely related to those of Booker T. Washington or W. E. B. Du Bois?

Do not simply give your overall impression of Obama's presidency; I encourage you to remain focused on the ideas in this speech.
