Summary

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 Bois’s work has illuminated his own life practices as a Black student, teacher, assistant principal, and professor. Sharing the story of a brilliant man’s 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 Bois’s life and scholarship, before turning more specifically to Du Bois’s theory of an educational system. The book concludes with an examination of Du Bois’s curriculum model, predicated upon the work of the NAACP, the Harlem Renaissance, and Du Bois’s own writings, as well as a discussion of the lasting legacy of Du Bois’s 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 Bois’s scholarship, social criticism, and political thought as they relate to his educational theory.
