David Levering Lewis never disappoints his readers.

Ships from and sold by Books and Gratitude and More. David Levering Lewis never disappoints his readers. I read many biographies and some authors get too bogged down in explaining the subject's motivations, etc. - to the point that it becomes just plain boring and hard to read. The opposite is true of Lewis. This guy weaves a story that you can not put down, while giving readers a strong understanding of Dubois and the social milieus that he lived in at various points in time.

Throughout, DuBois treats the movement among African Americans as essential part of the US labor movement-and points out the weakness of the sections of the white labor movement that tried to grow by excluding or ignoring the Black movement.

Du Bois, David Levering Lewis (Introduction). The pioneering work in the study of the role of Black Americans during Reconstruction by the most influential Black intellectual of his time. Throughout, DuBois treats the movement among African Americans as essential part of the US labor movement-and points out the weakness of the sections of the white labor movement that tried to grow by excluding or ignoring the Black movement. He quotes from some sources at length, and these can slow you down. But overall the style of the book is beautiful, powerful, and moving.

Du Bois was an influential African American rights activist during the early 20th century. Du Bois died one day before Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech at the March on Washington (August 28, 1963). He co-founded the NAACP and wrote 'The Souls of Black Folk. Harvard University, niversität (now Humboldt-Universität), University of Berlin, Fisk University.

Certainly, while Dr. Du Bois was deep in his ninth decade when he died, longevity was the least remarkable feature of his life.

Although he used some religious metaphor and expressions in some of his books and writings, Du Bois called himself a freethinker

Although he used some religious metaphor and expressions in some of his books and writings, Du Bois called himself a freethinker. In "On Christianity," a posthumously published essay, Du Bois critiqued the black church: "The theology of the average colored church is basing itself far too much upon 'Hell and Damnation'-upon an attempt to scare people into being decent and threatening them with the terrors of death and punishment.

As always, W. E. B. DuBois consummate author/writer who deftly wrote about "Western civilization" and racism and its effects on the African-Americans.
