Here is the first intimate study of one of the earliest and greatest spokesmen for black liberation - W.E.B. Du Bois - as only his wife could have seen him. Events and personalities crowd this rich memoir - Du Bois's break with the NAACP (which he helped to found), the McCarthy era, and his trial as "an agent of a foreign principal." Here are his triumphant tours abroad, his talks with Kruschev and Mao, his friendship with Nkrumah and final move to Ghana. All of this is part of a personal document of human dignity and achievement. --from inside jacket flap

A biography of Benjamin Banneker, eighteenth-century African American mathematician and astronomer whose calculations of the locations of stars and planets for American almanacs were widely distributed from 1792 to1797. Born as a free slave in Baltimore County, Maryland, he was the son of an African slave Robert Bammeler, who had bought his own freedom, and Mary Banneky, who was the daughter of an Englishwoman and a free African slave. In 1791, Banneker and Major Andrew Wllicott surveyed a 10-mile square of the Federal Territory for a new national capital, which later became Washington, D.C. He forwarded a copy of his calculations and the survey to Thomas Jefferson, then secretary of state, with a letter criticizing Jefferson for his proslavery views and urging the abolishment of African American slavery. This exchange of letters between Banneker and Jefferson was published as a pamphlet, and was given wide publicity at the time.The two letters were also reprinted in Banneker's almanac for 1793
