Description


DuBois was the most influential black intellectual in American history, one whose voice and thoughts continue to enlighten and educate readers today, and this is a collection of his most inspired short-form writing. Collecting essays and poems from publications such as The Atlantic and The Journal of Race Development, this 1920 volume-provocative and aggressive and unflattering to the dominant white culture-raised the ire of many mainstream critics of the day, which continues to make it all the more valuable a read today. Included here are: . "The Shadow of Years" . "The Souls of White Folks" . "The Hands of Ethiopia" . "Of Work and Wealth" . "The Servant in the House" . "Of the Ruling of Men" . "The Damnation of Women" . "The Immortal Child" . "Of Beauty and Death" . "The Comet" . and more American writer, civil rights activist, and scholar WILLIAM EEDWARD BURGHARDT DUBOIS (1868-1963) was the first black man to receive a PhD from Harvard University. A co-founder of the NAACP, he wrote a number of important books, including The Philadelphia Negro (1899), Black Folk, Then and Now (1899), and The Negro (1915).
