Darkwater: Voices from within the Veil
New York: : Harcourt, Brace and Howe, 1920. 8vo, dark blue cloth, lettered in light blue on top cover and spine, no dust jacket, viii, [2], 276 pp. Some fraying to spine ends, lower top hinge a bit torn, extremities show a little wear, scuff on top cover, bookplate removed from front pastedown; still a very decent copy. Du Bois (1868-1963) was an activist, sociologist, teacher, historian, and one of the most influential African-American intellectuals of the 20th century. His work ranged from a sociological study of The Philadelphia Negro, for the University of Pennsylvania in 1899, to helping develop the NAACP. Around 1900 Du Bois would develop an intellectual and political interest in Pan-Africanism, which would continue for most of his life. While this work includes some poems and essays, and is part autobiographical, it also includes his views on racism, slavery and colonialism. ANB.
