 Here is the powerful testimony of one of America’s greatest black spokesmen, W. E. B. Du Bois. Newbery-award winner Virginia Hamilton is the author of a comprehensive biography of Du Bois. Now she has edited a representative selection of his essays, articles, speeches, and excerpts from his other writings, to which she has added her own pertinent introductions. Revealed here in an extraordinary range covering seventy years of his long, productive life, W. E. B. Du Bois speaks to blacks and whites alike. A controversial political figure and activist, he was a founder of the Niagara Movement, the NAACP, The Crisis magazine, and the Pan-African Movement. Du Bois here voices his protest against slavery, segregation, racial inequality, and oppression of blacks. He discusses children and women’s suffrage, education and progress, socialism and black self-sufficiency. Seeing himself as both unique and part of a vast problem, he eloquently describes his early years, researches, and teaching experiences, as well as his trial and acquittal, his travels to Russia and China, and the final meaning of his accomplishments to future generations. The life and works of this distinguished man have been much honored since his death in Ghana, Africa, in 1963. This book will provide the reader with rewarding insights into the prophetic thought and philosophy of W. E. B. Du Bois.
