I had never read DuBois and I wonder why this book isn't required reading in any class about American history. I think he's considered "Black History" and while that's certainly true, the white people were there as well. We all need to know what happened and why.
Nice style, nice lenses. However, these really shouldn't be advertised for wearing over glasses. It's possible to use them that way but they don't fit snugly over driving glasses. These are just a nice pair of sunglasses.
I feel that this book was a bunch of essays slammed together to make a book. That being said, WEB Du Bois ends up repeating himself a lot and on top of that, this book could have been put together in 300 pages or less. Not 600 Pages. Over all, I found the book dragging on with a highlight every so often.
This is not what I expected. It is a "text book" and lacks the entertaining "story telling" touch of a bio. I should have looked closer at the year it was written, early 1900's. I'll keep it as a reference but not read cover to cover as too dull
