Black Reconstruction in America (The Oxford W. E. B. Du Bois): An Essay Toward a History of the Part Which Black Folk Played in the Attempt to Reconstruct Democracy in America, 1860-1880

This book is about W.E.B. Du Bois
"Black Reconstruction in America" dives deep into the pivotal yet often overlooked era of 1860-1880, a time when African Americans endeavored to reconstruct democracy in post-Civil War America. Authored by the eminent sociologist and activist W. E. B. Du Bois, this seminal work, first published in 1935 and reissued on March 15, 2007, challenges the conventional narratives of the time. Through meticulous research and compelling prose, Du Bois recounts the role of black Americans during Reconstruction, highlighting their struggle for political and social equality amidst the rise of Jim Crow laws and other discriminatory practices. This edition, featuring introductions by scholars Henry Louis Gates Jr. and David Levering Lewis, is indispensable for college students and all readers interested in the intersections of racial justice and voting rights. Engaging with this text not only provides historical insights but also prompts critical reflection on the racial dynamics that continue to influence American democracy today.
