W. E. B. Du Bois was a public intellectual, sociologist, and activist on behalf of the African American community. He profoundly shaped black political culture in the United States through his founding role in the NAACP, as well as internationally through the Pan-African movement. Du Bois's sociological and historical research on African-American communities and culture broke ground in many areas, including the history of the post-Civil War Reconstruction period. Du Bois was also a prolific author of novels, autobiographical accounts, innumerable editorials and journalistic pieces, and several works of history.Published in 1924 in response to growing racial tensions, W. E. B. Du Bois's The Gift of Black Folk explores the contributions African Americans have made to American society, detailing the importance of racial diversity to the United States. Writing for a general audience, Du Bois employs a sweeping scope for his argument, covering the European discovery of America to the twentieth century. In doing so he works to prove that through African Americans' struggle for freedom and equality, they have most fully realized the goal of democracy. With a series introduction by editor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and an introduction by Glenda Carpio, this edition is essential for anyone interested in African American history.

I came across this book from a reference to another book I was reading. How can such a hidden treasure not be on the forefront of one of the best books?

The Gift of Black Folk is a comprehensive analytical perspective of the role of African Americans in the development of American culture. WEB Dubois presents excellent analysis of the ways in which our culture was shaped by Blacks an many levels, including economic impact, role in war, religious and cultural impact on the America we have come to be. Some of the sources he cites were previously completely unknown to me, despite my considering myself a fairly enlightened person of pallor. It is a little dated as it is not a current work, but definitely lays the foundation for how our culture has been shaped from the beginning. A highly recommended read.

One of Du Bois's (unfortunately) lesser known works. A beautiful, important book.

I had not been aware of this book prior to its reprinting. It was an eye opener for me in terms of the information about reconstruction and other issues. I bought several copies to share with friends. It is a must have for American history buffs.

Excellent!!!
Very relevant today as it was in 1924. In some ways, progress has been made; in some ways it hasn't. A good example is the recent "song" at Oklahoma University.
