John Brown. [American Crisis Biographies]
A scarce W.E.B. Du Bois title, here published with the American Crisis Biographies series. “After the completion of the Philadelphia study in December 1897, Du Bois began the first of two long tenures at Atlanta University [...] During this first tenure at Atlanta he also wrote two more books, The Souls of Black Folk, a collection of poignant essays on race, labor, and culture, and John Brown (1909), an impassioned interpretation of the life and martyrdom of the militant abolitionist.” (ANB)
