W. E. B. Du Bois
Heroes of Black History
W. E. B. DuBois tackled the great question of the early twentieth century: How could African Americans gain equal footing with whites in the United States? He studied the social conditions of blacks for more than a decade before espousing protest and agitation as vehicles for change. This stand and black nationalist ideas put him at odds with other reformers of the day, such as Booker T. Washington. This outstanding biography of the great leader details his life as well as his roles in the Niagara Movement and the NAACP.
