  • "This book chronicles the story of sixty years of the life of a great man, Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois, a social scientist, historian and leader of the Negro people, both in the U.S.A. where he was born, bred and educated, and in Africa whence came his great-great-grandfather, in chains, for the American slave blocks of the seventeenth century. This is the book of an author who understands, perhahps better than any other, the underlying nature of color prejudice; who writes of what he knows with satire, humor, irony and the stirring indignation of the polemic. What he says not only goes to the heart of the question, it goes to the heart of the reader. It is a book to give pride and dignity to all of mankind." --Back cover.
