W.E.B. DuBois: A Recorded Autobiography, Interview with Moses Asch

W.E.B. DuBois FW05511 / FH 5511

This is the extraordinary life of W.E.B. DuBois in his own words. The autobiographical account begins at age seventeen as DuBois left Massachusetts to attend Fisk University in 1885, and ends in the 1940s as DuBois describes his struggles with the NAACP. Each experience that DuBois shares is marked by his perception of the racial environment that encompassed it and he portrays how his identity and reactions were affected. A full transcription of DuBois’ inspirational account, complete with photographs, is included in the liner notes.
