Editorial Reviews for this title:
- In his many novels, poetry, histories, editorials, plays, and letters, W. E. B. Du Bois poured so much of his blindingly incandescent soul into his writings that no single volume could ever contain all of his words or works. In fact, had not the historian David Levering Lewis taken it upon himself to pen his Pulitzer Prize-winning double-volume biography of Du Bois, it is quite possible (sadly) that the deeper significance and greater scope of Du Bois' many exemplary contributions to humanity would have eluded modern readers. THE WISDOM OF W. E. D. DU BOIS, part of Citadel Press' Philosophical Library Series, employs twelve original essays by the author Aberjhani to showcase excerpts from what seemed to be Du Bois' ceaselessly prolific pen and life.
- Here, to be savored, in bite-sized nuggets of instant motivation and inspiration is Du Bois' at his most brilliant on such subjects as the dynamics of creativity, the healing joy of love, the prophetic vision of democracy, the spiritual perils of war, and much more. These pages throb with uncompromising faith in the truth and beauty of the human spirit.
