The Philadelphia Negro; a social study by W. E. B Du Bois( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1996 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1897 a young sociologist who was already marked as a scholar of the highest promise submitted to the American Association of Political and Social Sciences a "plan for the study of the Negro problem." The product of that plan was the first great empirical book on the Negro in American society. William Edward Burghardt DuBois (1868-1963), Ph.D. from Harvard (class of 1890), was given a temporary post as Assistant in Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania in order to conduct in-depth studies on the Negro community in Philadelphia. The provost of the university was interested and sympathetic, but DuBois knew early on that white interest and sympathy were far from enough. He knew that scholarship was itself a great weapon in the Negro's struggle for a decent life. The Philadelphia Negro was originally published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 1899. One of the first works to combine the use of urban ethnography, social history, and descriptive statistics, it has become a classic work in the social science literature. Both the issues the book raises and the evolution of DuBois's own thinking about the problems of black integration into American society sound strikingly contemporary. Among the intriguing aspects of The Philadelphia Negro are what it says about the author, about race in urban America and about social science at the time, but even more important is the fact that many of DuBois's observations can be made - in fact are being made - by investigators today. In his introduction to this edition, Elijah Anderson traces DuBois's life before his move to Philadelphia. He then examines how the neighborhood studied by DuBois has changed over the years, and he compares the status of blacks today with their status when the book was initially published

Dark princess, a romance by W. E. B Du Bois( Book )

3 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in Undetermined and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem of "the color line," W. E. B. Du Bois's ever-present polemical theme, is at the core of this novel of sensual love, radical politics, and the quest for racial justice. Originally published in 1928, Dark Princess has a fantastical storyline, heavy with propagandist overtones. Du Bois depicts 1920s America as a racist nation primed for radical protest and terrorism. Matthew Townes, the protagonist, is a medical student expelled because his race bars him from the required course in obstetrics in a white hospital. Self-exiled in Berlin after his political idealism is corrupted, Townes falls in love with Princess Kautilya, daughter of a maharajah, and joins her international team in which people of color unite against white imperialism

The gift of Black folk : the Negroes in the making of America by W. E. B Du Bois( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Towering African-American scholar and civil rights campaigner Du Bois (1868-1963) described the achievements of African Americans and their contributions to US history and culture in 1924, when Jim Crow laws and segregated schools were the norm, and most people believed without thinking that only white Protestant males could be American heroes. His message must be sent again every generation until it is no longer news. Among the areas he surveys are Black explorers, labor, the emancipation of democracy, the freedom of womanhood, Negro art and literature, and the gift of the spirit.
