The gift of Black folk: the Negroes in the making of America
Square One Pub., Jan 20, 2009 - History - 198 pages
Although the Civil War marked an end to slavery in the United States, it would take another fifty years to establish the country's civil rights movement. Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois was among the first generation of African-American scholars to spearhead this movement towards equality. As cofounder of the NAACP, he sought to initiate equality through social change, and as a talented writer, he created books and essays that provide a revealing glimpse into the black experience of the times. In The Gift of Black Folk-one of Du Bois' most important works-he recounts the remarkable history of African-Americans and their many unsung contributions to American society.
