8 W.E.B. Du Bois Quotes That Will Blow Your Mind
Back in May, a blog article was posted on this site called W.E.B. DuBois, Marcus Garvey and the Resurgency of the Radical Black Left which sought to elaborate on the history of Black political thought. A considerable amount of time was spent on W.E.B. Du Bois who I called 'one of the greatest Black radical intellectuals in Black American history.' It is my belief that these W.E.B. Du Bois quotes that I place before you right now will help to reinforce that opinion. The quotes are in long form, so you can get a better idea of what he was saying and see that this man was way ahead of his time.
W.E.B. Du Bois on Unconstitutional Acts Against Black People
On the 'Tuskegee Machine' and Controlled Black Opposition
On Racial and Economic Oppression
On Industrial Imperialism
On Plutocracy, Democratic Socialism & the 'Basic American [Black] Creed'
On Black Self-Hatred, Black Pride & Group Economics
All I can say is, I hope your intellectual soul is full after reading those knowledge bombs from back in the day. You might notice is used 'Black' in brackets throughout the quotations to replace the dated word 'Negro' which was commonly used in society during DuBois' time. I tried to find the quotes that are still pertinent to the world we live in today. These long form W.E.B. DuBois quotes are timeless and should be shared everywhere.
