Darkwater: Voices from within the Veil

 
9781592326075: Darkwater: Voices from within the Veil

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

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.

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)


"This set is a valuable contribution to African-American scholarship. It has the potential to introduce a new readership to the scope and breadth of a unique and seminal thinker. The works included can provide a more comprehensive understanding of the issues now facing contemporary Americans....[A] breathtaking collection."--School Library Journal


"The general introduction and the introductions to each of Du Bois's works form a valuable opus in their own right, as they convey the author's political and social theories and indicate the richness and development of his ideas....The realities of slavery, racism, and segregation in the United States are always at the forefront, making these works (many of them out-of-print) continually pertinent and forceful reading....This set will be an essential addition to public and college libraries."--Reference and Research Book News


"This set will be vital to all large university libraries with collections in African American history and American literature."--American Reference Books Annual
