Free labor is the back bone of the Industrial Revolution. Without that free labor America wouldn't have ever been a super power. So America pay up in the form of reparations!!

This is a great book to help explain how African Americans have shaped the country and what we call the United States of America and also shaped the world.

Reviewed in the United States on March 5, 2012
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.

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.
