1. The Niagara Movement was a Civil Rights group, led by W. E. B. DuBois and William Monroe Trotter, and it aimed to counteract Washington’s influence over the black community with his policies of accommodation and conciliation. The Niagara Movement was named for its first meeting place at Niagara Falls on the Canadian side, because the hotel DuBois initially booked to host the meeting in the United States refused to serve People of Color.  The Niagara Movement’s principles asserted among many things suffrage, equality in education and civil rights.
