about

"This beautifully prepared volume contains seventy-one short prayers Du Bois wrote between 1909 and the spring of 1910 for the pupils of the primary and secondary schools and the university students at Atlanta University. Herbert Aptheker prepared them for publication from the original scraps of paper and has written a thoughtful, illuminating, and deeply felt introduction. The prayers show the range of Du Bois's concerns including the need for work and dedication to the cause of creating 'a good life for all on earth.'" - Sage Race Relations Abstracts
W.E.B. Du Bois was a critic, editor, scholar, author, and civil rights leader. Herbert Aptheker was a colleague of Du Bois's and a historian of the Afro-American experience.

Editorial Reviews

"These prayers certainly make a valuable contribution toward understanding more of [Du Bois. . . . He seems to have found the source of his power by being the instrument of a greater Power." - Black Scholar"Taken together, these fugitive pieces illuminate the deep spiritual values that undergirded Du Bois's political practice throughout his life. They also remind us of the breadth of Du Bois's vision and, even in his private musings, of the elegance of his writing." - In These Times
