One of the most prominent African American intellectuals of the twentieth century, W. E. B. Du Bois continues to influence the understanding of race relations in the United States. In this deeply personal introduction to the man and his ideas, esteemed scholar Carl A. Grant reflects on how Du Boiss work has illuminated his own life practices as a Black student, teacher, assistant principal, and professor. Sharing the story of a brilliant mans life contribution to teaching about race and the ideologies and methodologies of racism in education and social and political thought, Grant begins his narrative with a broad overview of Du Boiss life and scholarship, before turning more specifically to Du Boiss theory of an educational system. The book concludes with an examination of Du Boiss curriculum model, predicated upon the work of the NAACP, the Harlem Renaissance, and Du Boiss own writings, as well as a discussion of the lasting legacy of Du Boiss educational and social theory in the present day. Ideal for graduate-level courses in curriculum theory, educational foundations, and education history, Du Bois and Education provides an in-depth examination of Du Boiss scholarship, social criticism, and political thought as they relate to his educational theory.
