  • I hadn t known how DuBois was blacklisted for his work in the peace movement, specifically for his making explicit the connections between war, the growth of industry, and colonialism In the early 1950 s he was banned as a speaker on college campuses, suffered a press black out in the Black and mainstream media, and observed by government agents This book charts the development of his international perspective that grows from a driving concern about the color line to incorporate Marxism and soci [...]


  • A somewhat dry telling of an amazing life, Du Bois s diversions and speculations are the highlight of this book Du Bois s accomplishments and the scope of his experiences are incredible he lived from 1868 to 1963 and traveled both the country and the globe extensively Du Bois himself comes across as a bit humorless and he has a tendency to overquote from his letters and speeches The read is worth it, however, for his account, in the third part of the book, of his red scare prosecution when he wa [...]


  • W.E.B Du Bois was one of the greatest geniuses this nation has ever produced Among scholars, and historians he has no real competition and his writing is some of the most beautiful I ve ever read All around he was an amazing man, and this autobiography does him justice Outside of that it s history lived not just recited This is literally an epic.


  • Not Du Bois best work, but then when I m 93 I hope I can write just as well Du Bois the historian is competing with Du Bois the literary figure Too much of it is taken paragraph by paragraph straight from documents and speeches When he moves away from that, some of the passages really shine though.


  • This book is written with the same poetic style as most of his other work, and you will definately benefit by reading the almost century long journey of one of the greatest thinkers and writers the world has ever seen was good to read again his thoughts and perceptions as history unfolded before his eyes.


  • if only I didnt put this book on the top of my car before I drove away from our campsite This was Du Bois s last autobiography and it was really interesting to see his political evolution into a communist He makes his declaration as a communist at the age of i think 90 damn.


  • When I get the book I will let you all know how it was Until then wait until i fuckin read it Have a nice day


  • Not just good writing but clear history and social comment This is another of those books I feel an American should read as a part of basic education.
