About the Author:

W.E.B. Du Bois was an intellectual leader in the United States as sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, and editor. Born in Massachusetts, Du Bois graduated from Harvard, where he earned his Ph.D in History, the first African-American to earn a doctorate at Harvard. Later he became a professor of history and economics at Atlanta University. As head of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1910, he was founder and editor of the NAACP's journal The Crisis. Du Bois rose to national attention in his opposition of Booker T. Washington's alleged ideas of accommodation with Jim Crow separation between whites and blacks and disfranchisement of blacks in the South, campaigning instead for increased political representation for blacks in order to guarantee civil rights, and the formation of a black intellectual elite who would work for the progress of the African-American race.

Review:

People will wish that this book had not been written. Actually it is a book so skilfully put together, so passionately felt, so lyrically expressed, that it will be read widely. May it also be read wisely! --R. Foerster, The Survey (1920)

There is, to my mind, no better example of Du Bois's critical engagement of the dialectics of colonialism and capitalism, and racism and sexism, and the interlocking, intersecting and inter-connecting nature of each of the aforementioned than his 1920 monumental pièce de résistance, Darkwater. --Dr. Reiland Rabaka, Jouvert (2003)

Like Souls of Black Folk, Du Bois's masterpiece Darkwater is filled with brilliant ideas and experimental methodology. Beginning with autobiography and ending with a chilling science fiction story about the destruction of Manhattan, Du Bois provides pathbreaking sociological analysis. --Historian J.R. Feagin (2003)
