Editorial Reviews

Review

“Upon these falsifiers of Reconstruction history Dr. Du Bois has unloosed his brilliant and bitter eloquence. He has undertaken the herculean task of rewriting Reconstruction history on the basis of the unusual assumption (for an American historian) that “the Negro in America and in general is an average and ordinary human being, who under given environment develops like other human beings,” as against the more orthodox view of the Negro as an inferior being “whose emancipation and enfranchisement were gestures against nature…” Dr. Du Bois is to be commended for attacking the subject with a broad perspective… The book should be widely read.” 

—R. J. Bunche, The Journal of Negro Education

“Dr. Du Bois has written a book that will necessitate further reply from the advocates of capitalism and white supremacy—if they have the courage to read Black Reconstruction.”

—Rayford W. Logan, The Journal of Negro History

“It is not surprising that the publication of this book should be hailed as a literary event… [In] a bitter political fight over the Negro’s place in American society… Dr. Du Bois stood squarely and bravely for full educational opportunity and complete social and political equality.”

—Sterling D. Spero, The Nation
