Help with DBQ please!

Okay, I have this DBQ to do and I was wondering if anyone can help me out a bit. The question is Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois offered different strategies for dealing with the problems of poverty and discrimination faced by Black Americans at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries. I support Du Bois but am having a hard time coming up with some reasons. Any help would be appreciated!:confused:

Look at the regions they grew up and their personal history. DuBois demanded immediate racial equality (asking white people to change) and Washington advocated economic empowerment of the African-American community (asking black people to change). Start there and see what you can come up with.
