The educational thought of W.E.B. Du Bois: an intellectual history

Front Cover
Teachers College Press, Feb 22, 2008 - Biography & Autobiography - 189 pages
Derrick Alridge's The Educational Thought of W.E.B. Du Bois is a major contribution to American and African American intellectual and educational history. Alridge provides the first detailed scholarly analysis of the full range of Du Bois's educational philosophy, placing it within the context of the larger social and intellectual movements in American society and throughout the African world. Well documented and gracefully written, Alridge's important work fills one of the remaining gaps in our knowledge and understanding of the intellectual legacy of the leading African American scholar-activist of the twentieth century.
