Reviews - What do customers think about A Stranger In My Own House: The Story Of W. E. B. Du Bois (Portraits of Black Americans)?

Eye opening  Oct 25, 2005
This a biography of one of the original founder of the Civil Rights movement. W.E.B. Du Bois(William Edward Burghardt). He was born in Massachusetts in 1868. He grew up with his mother and brother. His father had left when he was quite young. It was soon found out how smart and intelligent he was that he eventually skipped a grade. He did not see the extreme prejudice of being black till he enrolled at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. He eventually became professor, writer, speaker and social activist. He is the author of the well known book "the souls of black folk" which is still very valid today. He was one of the first African American involved with the founding of the NAACP(national association advancement of colored people). This book goes into detailed of his upbringing, his college years and his fight for equality of his fellow black americans and black everywhere. this books shows many pictures of the various era that the book covers
Focuses on his basic convictions   Jun 14, 2005
A Stranger In My Own House: The Story Of W.E.B. Di Bpod by Bonnie Hinman joins other biographies for this age group with a difference: it focuses on his basic convictions that political and economic equality equaled a voluntary segregation as a means to achieving these goals. Chapters follow his press for the liberation of blacks around the world, and reveal the foundations for many of his controversial beliefs. Also an important guide.
Making DuBois Real  Jun 1, 2005
W.E.B. DuBois - pioneering sociologist, historian, professor, writer, editor, speaker, social activist, founding member of the NAACP and world traveler - has become an icon, and as such, rather unapproachable. Bonnie Hinman brings his work, passions and even his doubts to life, making him real.

She also navigates deftly through the complex social history of the era, which during DuBois lifetime ranged from Reconstruction to the early 1960's. This is particularly commendable, as too often the Civil Rights Movement is simplistically portrayed as all black people joining hands and marching forth as one unified voice. Without wandering off into confusing tangents, the book manages to capture the fact that "what was becoming the civil rights movement was born in fits and starts and changed along the way."

Well illustrated with period paintings, photos and documents, the book includes a time line, source notes, bibliography, and selected web resources. Highly recommended for young adults and actually, even for adults who would like to get to know this great and complex man.
