Americans Who Tell The Truth - portraits and quotes by Robert Shetterly
"Back of the problem of race and color lies a greater problem and that is the fact that so many civilized persons are willing to live in comfort even if the price of this is poverty, ignorance, and disease of the majority of their fellowmen, [and] that to maintain this privilege men have waged war until today war tends to become universal and continuous."
- W.E.B. DuBois -
The first African American to earn a PHD from Harvard, DuBois' vast collection of writings established him as one of the most important voices in the movement for justice and social equality.
