W.E.B DU BOIS ON MARRIAGE

‘We want to impress on the emerging generations of Negroes in America, the ideal of plain living and high thinking, in defiance of American noise, waste and display; the rehabilitation of the indispensable family group, by the deliberate planning of marriage, with mates selected for heredity, physique, health and brains, with less insistence on colour, comeliness, or romantic sex lure, mis-called love; youth should marry young and have limited number of children; the home must be a place of education, rather than of cleaning and cooking, with books, discussion and entertainment”
