    Paperback Description:

    Beginning work on The Negro in 1912, W.E.B. Du Bois labored against an intesten backdrop of colonialism and racism. Europe had carved up the African continent, exploiting Africa and its people. Appearing in 1915, Du Bois’ account attacked the foundation of this explotiation—the racist doctrine that claimed Africans have no history, have made no contributions to history, and deserve no history. Du Bois’ work was nothing less tha pioneering and with this slim volume he inspired generations to see African history from a different perspective—an African Perspective.
