Darkwater: Voices from Within the Veil (Radical Thinkers)

Essential reading for students of African-American history

The distinguished American civil rights leader, W. E. B. Du Bois first published these fiery essays, sketches, and poems individually nearly 80 years ago in the Atlantic, the Journal of Race Development, and other periodicals. Part essay, part autobiography, Darkwater explicitly addresses significant issues, such as the oppression of women and Eurocentric standards of beauty, the historical rise of the idea of whiteness, and the abridgement of democracy along race, class, and gender lines. Reflecting the author’s ideas as a politician, historian, and artist, this volume has long moved and inspired readers with its militant cry for social, political, and economic reforms for black Americans.

W.E.B. Du Bois was an American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, and editor. He was one of the co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909. He is the author of numerous books, including the seminal The Souls of Black Folk and his 1935 magnum opus Black Reconstruction in America.
