W.E.B. Du Bois: Propagandist of the Negro Protest.

The struggle of W.E.B. Du Bois in his fight for race equality and racial integration

With a new Preface by Louis Harlan and an Epilogue by the author. The difficult, often contentious, battle fought by W.E.B. Du Bois to seek racial equality and racial integration across all quarters. Rudwick explains how Du Bois picked no favorites. He needled the growing Negro intelligentsia and demanded from white Americans a solution for the “Negro problem.” W.E.B. Du Bois, according to Rudwick, “...made a career of seeking to popularize the unpopular cause of race equality, choosing to live intimately with frustration rather than with smashing success. Trying to find the portal to integration, he battled Republicans, Democrats, Socialists, Communists, and the labor unions, as well as such Negro leaders as Booker T. Washington, Marcus Garvey, and Walter White, who often disputed the practicality of his ideas.”
