Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"DuBois has done well for his own future standing in the light of history and for the correct interpretation of his people and their problem by writing this noteworthy book." —Saturday Review "DuBois describes in a mood of mounting intensity, sternly held in check, his own changing attitudes towards the restricting bars set up against the world of color. The story of DuBois' life, devoted to a program of action against these restrictions, presents an unforgettable picture of the changing life of our time." Library Journal
