Event Description

Du Bois, an incredible thinker and author who pushes beyond the limits of the American narrative with his challenging observations and interpretations. A must read and a great source of stimulating conversation.Bring questions and comments to this conversation format. Du Bois published Black Reconstruction (BR) in 1935 with Harcourt, Brace and Company (New York). He completed it after leaving the NAACP and returning to Atlanta University. Its subtitle, “An Essay Toward a History of the Part Which Black Folk Played in the Attempt to Reconstruct Democracy in America, 1860-1880,” neatly summarized his central argument in the book. Accordingly, Black Reconstruction foregrounds several recurring Du Boisian themes: the role of African American agency in the building of the U.S.A. and the significance of promoting African American equality and freedom in order to achieve the promise of democracy. The book directly chal­lenged dominant views of the time that the Reconstruction era in American history was a disaster for the South and for the country. It received much comment, including criticisms, from across the political spectrum. (http://www.webdubois.org
