Description


A collection of articles that treat Du Bois on the subject of religion by reintroducing the life and work of Du Bois to an audience that may be familiar with his work generally but may never have seen analyses of Du Bois's study of religion. Also, in treating the biography and career of a thinker whose work covers much of the twentieth century, the editors intend this work to address larger issues related to the religion in the United States over the course of the century. Unfortunately, scholarly treatment of both Du Bois's critical writings on religion, as well as his own personal religious development has been relatively lacking. The soulful side of the man whose most famous work was about the souls of black folk, in short, has been largely neglected.
