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. --AberjhaniFrom the Back Cover:
