Summary
W.E.B Du Bois stands as the preeminent Africanist and Pan-Africanist of the twentieth century, but, also, arguably the most important Black intellectual of his time. Though often lauded for his work on African Americans specifically, he was also the champion of the African continent, its peoples, and its entire diaspora throughout his life. Despite this fact, his work on Africa has been underemphasized and under theorized in much of the scholarly writing about him, particularly in the United States. This book brings together Du Bois's writings on Africa from the beginning of the twentieth century to his death in Ghana in the early 1960s. Including over fifty magazine and journal articles, poems and book chapters, the works included in this volume clearly show not only Du Bois's genius as a writer, but his profound understanding of how the quest for racial equality involved all of the people of African origin who suffered under colonial rule in Africa and in the Black diaspora. Comprehensively, these collections of writings gathered together in this volume represent a culmination of his most prolific work concerning Africa. Not only does he present the rich history and diverse cultures of Africa, but also his significance as an international figure for racial equality and social justice for people of African descent worldwide
