Originally published in 1920, Darkwater makes DuBois’ previous work, including the ever popular Souls of Black Folk, seem tame and conservative by comparison. That’s why you haven’t heard of it! Darkwater is revolutionary, uncompromising and unconventional in both its content and style of presentation, addressing topics ranging from the plight of Black women to the rise of a Black Messiah, from a critical analysis of white people to the need for outright revolution

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.Review :
"This set represents an invaluable assembly of the works of the pioneering African American scholar, activist, and creative genius....The introductions to the individual volumes are written by such distinguished scholars as to make those writings indispensable treasures in their own right. Recommended for all public libraries and essential for every academic institution."--Library Journal (starred review)
