A W.E.B. Du Bois Reader
This prophetic anthology of essays, lectures, articles, notes and excerpts from the writings of W.E.B. Du Bois--many of which have never before been collected--will stand as the powerful testimony of one of Black America's greatest scholars, spokesmen and organizers. The man who helped found the Niagara movement, the NAACP, the Pan-African movement; the black emancipator who originated black awareness, black power and the "third world" concept, is revealed here in an extraordinary spectrum covering seven decades ofhis long, productive life. W.E.B. Du Bois speaks to black and white alike, to the world of the nineteenth century and that of the twentieth, about being a black man in the white world of America, in the colonialized world of Africa, in the third world of color, and in the revolutionary world of youth.
