Dark Princess (Annotated): A Romance

This book is about W.E.B. Du Bois
"Dark Princess (Annotated): A Romance" masterfully weaves a narrative of love, politics, and the harsh realities of racial injustice and gender inequality. Originally published in 1928 and enriched with over one hundred new annotations to provide deeper cultural and historical insights, this edition breathes new life into W.E.B. Du Bois's poignant exploration of American racism and British imperialism. The story follows Matthew Towns, a young Black medical student in America who, after being barred from his dream due to his race, ventures to Europe. There, he meets and falls in love with Kautilya, a princess from India equally passionate about social justice. Together, they navigate a world rife with corruption and prejudice, their bond tested by tragedy and a relentless pursuit of equality. This narrative not only highlights the personal struggles and resilience of its characters but also prompts critical reflection on the ongoing issues of racial and gender justice. Ideal for college students, "Dark Princess" is a compelling invitation to explore complex themes of identity, power, and resistance through the lens of historical fiction.
