The Wisdom Of W.E.B. Du Bois (Wisdom Library)

Aberjhani; W.E.B. Du Bois Author

9780806525105: The Wisdom Of W.E.B. Du Bois (Wisdom Library)

  • 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.

From the Author:

The invitation to write and edit The Wisdom of W.E. B. Du Bois came just as I was completing work on Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance. It seemed a little crazy at first to start working on one major title while still dealing with another. But Kensington Books wanted to include the profile in their Philosophical Library Series, which would make it the first to feature an African-American author in the acclaimed series. They also planned to publish it in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of Du Bois' classic The Souls of Black Folk. That plus the great honor of sharing a by-line with the phenomenal Du Bois himself was too much literary joy to resist. Fortunately, my labors on Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance had already made me familiar with much of the material I would need to produce the book and the thrill of simultaneously working on it and the encyclopedia totally relieved any stress involved. Approval expressed by readers from the around the globe helped a lot as well.      --Aberjhani

From the Back Cover:

  • The Wisdom Library invites you on a journey through the lives and works of the world's greatest thinkers and leaders. Compiled by scholars, this series presents excerpts from the most important and revealing writings of the most remarkable minds of all time.
  • Using excerpts from his many books, articles, essays, poems, letters, and speeches, The Wisdom of W.E.B. Du Bois provides a telling portrait of the man and his groundbreaking ideas. It is a tribute to a voice that would not be silenced and to a pioneer who, in his passion for justice movingly declared, "The cost of liberty is less than the price of repression."
