Book Description

20 July 2005
A leading historian of Du Bois discusses the relevance today of Du Bois's prophetic work. Marable is among the most prominent black scholars in the US. The author of the How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America (first edition sold over 30,000 copies). This book provides new insights into Du Bois's lesser known views on women's suffrage, socialism and peace. Will be a perfect companion to the recent 100th anniversary edition of Du Bois's Souls of Black Folk. Distinguished historian and social activist Manning Marable's book, W. E. B. Du Bois: Black Radical Democrat, brings out the interconnections, unity, and consistency of W. E. B. Du Bois's life and writings. Marable covers Du Bois's disputes with Booker T. Washington, his founding of the NAACP, his work as a social scientist, his life as a popular figure, and his involvement in politics, placing them into the context of Du Bois's views on black pride, equality, and cultural diversity. Marable stresses that, as a radical democrat, Du Bois viewed the problems of racism as intimately connected with capitalism. The publication of this updated edition follows more than one hundred celebrations recently marking the 100th anniversary of Du Bois's The Souls of Black Folk. Marable broadens earlier biographies with a new introduction highlighting Du Bois's less-known advocacy of women's suffrage, socialism, and peace and he traces his legacy to today in an era of changing racial and social conditions.

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to read this! 24 Oct 2005
By Third World - Published on Amazon.com
What makes Du Bois so interesting is not only his intellect but that there were many intelligent people around him that challenged his mind. Booker T. and Garvey are the obvious ones but E. Franklin Frazier, A. Philip Randolph, Alexander Crummel and a host of others did as well. Manning does an exceptional job detailing one of the greats of the 20th Century. Black people should search this book to see not only what liberation requires but also as a tool to be used in order to filter through the many quasi leaders parading around today. "Any education that black people receive must be centered around solving their political, social and economic problems. It must start in Africa and come right up to the present day Negro." I'm para-phrasing but has anyone heard anything near this insightful from the characters of the last 25 years?
