by Chad L. Williams
Historian Chad Williams tells the dramatic story of W. E. B. Du Bois' reckoning with the betrayal of Black soldiers during World War I - and a new understanding of one of the great twentieth-century writers. (Du Bois was also a native of Western Massachusetts). “A compelling account of the iconic civil rights leader's effort to make sense of World War I and its meaning for racial equality and democracy.” ~ Kirkus Reviews
