Editorial Reviews

Review

The Gift of Black Folk - "(Du Bois') singular greatness lay in his quest for truth about his own people." (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

About the Author

William Edward Burghardt Du Bois, a gifted writer, scholar, sociologist, historian, and activist, became the first African-American to receive a PhD from Harvard University in 1895. An exponent of full equality for African- Americans, Du Bois was a cofounder of the Niagara Movement, which became the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909. A leading voice of the black community, Dr. Du Bois’ teachings, writings, and lectures provided a platform for his views that prompted action and change. Until his death in 1963, W.E.B. Du Bois led a passionate life of ceaseless energy and purposeful writing.

I had not been aware of this book prior to its reprinting. It was an eye opener for me in terms of the information about reconstruction and other issues. I bought several copies to share with friends. It is a must have for American history buffs.

The Gift of Black Folk is a comprehensive analytical perspective of the role of African Americans in the development of American culture. WEB Dubois presents excellent analysis of the ways in which our culture was shaped by Blacks an many levels, including economic impact, role in war, religious and cultural impact on the America we have come to be. Some of the sources he cites were previously completely unknown to me, despite my considering myself a fairly enlightened person of pallor. It is a little dated as it is not a current work, but definitely lays the foundation for how our culture has been shaped from the beginning. A highly recommended read.
