    One thought on “W.E.B. Du Bois: Biography of a Race, 1868-1919

    1. Eric

      This is a biography that actually merits the “magisterial” among its blurbs, the kind of book that shows biography second only to the novel for difficulty of organization and effect. As epigraph to the first of the five volumes he would devote to the life of Henry James, Leon Edel quoted a line from his subject’s rare foray into biography (William Wetmore Story and His Friends, 1903):To live other people’s lives is nothing unless we live over their perceptions, live over the growth, the [...]

    2. John

      I didn’t appreciate this book at first. I found Lewis’s style a little too wordy. But Du Bois was a giant – of ideas and study, appetites, activity and accomplishment – and in these hands he’s found expression equal to his engulfing vitality. It’s small wonder both volumes won the Pulitzer. And here’s one reason why: From his exegesis on DuBois's classic "The Souls of Black Folk"- “Had Du Bois left double consciousness in this epiphenomenal limbo – as a sort of non-ego or psych [...]

    3. Sara

      Du Bois was always a name I had heard of and wanted to learn more of his life. This first volume of this epic bio was truly a fascinating book. I had no idea of the animosity that existed between Du Bois and Booker T. Washington and how this complex relationship helped form modern racial theory for good and bad. Also, I never knew how African Americans were so impacted by World War I in ways that affected their livelihoods globally, both by racism at home and abroad. (Now, on to the second volum [...]

    4. Pete

      When featured their article on the Lynching of Jesse Washington it reminded me that I had read Du Bois' classic The Souls of Black Folk and the Pulitzer prize-winning biography of its author's early years quite a few years ago. Both of these books are foundational readings bringing to light the struggle of black's in America after the civil war. Many would rate these books with 5 stars and perhaps I should as well. However, I haven’t done so primarily because I had all but forgotten reading t [...]

    5. John

      This book is a bear! The detail is beyond anything I could have imagined. I wasn't up to the challenge and had to put it down halfway through. Really great discussion on the tensions between the Washington camp and those in DuBois's. It is hard to imagine this is ONLY part 1.

    6. Rosemary

      I found it really fascinating and tremendously sad with regard to the way African Americans have been treated ever since their ancestors were taken from their homelands. W.E.B. Du Bois was an incredibly gifted man who worked tirelessly to help his people achieve real equality and died just before the Civil Rights Act in the 1960s was passed. We fool ourselves as Americans that our nation was founded on principles of freedom and liberty -- it was, but only if you were white, male and well to do. [...]

    7. Zach

      I finally got around to this book given to me by my high school history teacher on graduation just in time for Black History Month. I knew very little about DuBois prior to reading these 600 pages on only the first half of his life. The biography covered a difficult time in America's history (1868-1919) that I hadn't covered before. This is a meticulously researched book that's dense at times, but still quite an enjoyable read.

    8. Karen Mead

      I hope my local library has part II, because as thick as this book is, I felt kind of unfulfilled when I came to the end and ran out out of proper Du Bois mayhem.Fascinating biography of a real social justice pioneer, but keep in mind that you will probably need to have a dictionary handy while you read this; Lewis has a huge vocabulary, and he puts in quite a few recondite terms that you don't see that much. I probably ended up looking about 20 words,at the very least.

    9. Jerome Strong

      Lewis leaves no rock unturned in his biography of this great pillar of the academy. DuBois is undoubtedly one of America's foremost scholars.

    10. Nicholas Lefevre

      This is the first volume of a two volume biography. Both volumes won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography.Remember that my ratings are personal, not reflecting objective merit but rather my personal reaction. Objectively this is a stunningly detailed and well-researched biography of a fascinating man. As a graduated textbook it would be all one needs on the subject.Du Bois was an intellectual giant excelling from his earliest days as a school boy, at Fiske, and at Harvard. His career was marked more [...]

    11. Eric

      Although it only encompasses the first fifty years in the life of W.E.B. Du Bois, one of the founders of the NAACP, it is so crammed with information that you will be overwhelmed to remember all the names and places. Also, have a dictionary handy.

    12. Thomas Rush

      When one thinks of the scope of American History, there are few names that stand out. Chief among them is a man by the name of William Edward Burghardt DuBois, better known as W.E.B. DuBois. For nearly all of his life, wherever DuBois attended an academic institution, he excelled at the highest levels. Though he was reared in a predominately White town in Massachusetts, his academic gifts were so apparent that the White residents got together and secured funds to send him to college since his si [...]

    13. Elliot Ratzman

      The great DuBois died at 95, so this biography traces his first fifty years. This was an excellent tutorial on the life and political machine of Booker T. Washington and his accommodation with the white South. DuBois almost receives a PhD in Economics from Berlin, settling for a PhD in History from Harvard. We follow his scholarship—such as his study of black life in Philly—as it breaks new ground in many social scientific disciplines. His observations about colonialism, the legacy of Recons [...]

    14. Michael

      This is an extremely well-researched and detailed biography of DuBois, a man about whom I knew little before starting the book. It covers his life from birth, detailing his education, work as a social scientist and then as the editor of The Crisis, during the earlier days of the NAACP. There is a careful examination of his relationships with other civil rights leaders of the times, most particularly his rivalry with Booker T. Washington. There is something to learn on every page and the book is [...]

    15. Ahonsi

      The book didn't become interesting, to me, until it began delving into the Washington/Du Bois difference of opinion. This means that the book was essentially a bore for roughly 300 or so pages. Another criticism I have is the author's penchant for using ten-dollar words -- it was annoying. Nonetheless, I plan on reading the second installment in due time.

    16. jacky

      I read parts of this book for a research project for my American History course Junior year of high school. I didn't enjoy this project and didn't do fabulous on it either, so I'm thinking I didn't like or understand much of what I read.

    17. Colleen

      It was very in depth, well researched and well written. I should have liked a more personal look, more about his family life, but that might be attributable to the way he lived his life rather than the biographer's choices. His mission was his life.

    18. Samuel Weikel

      its a very interesting book how he changed the world a little bit to be treated equal l men shoild be treated equal .
