These books are comprehensive biographical treatments of important Americans, emphasizing not just their lives, but the times in which they lived. Dr. William Edward Du Bois pioneered the science of sociology. His detailed long-range study of an African American community in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was the first of its kind. Du Bois hoped that knowledge, and the ensuing understanding, might lessen the prejudice against African Americans. Later Du Bois sought more radical methods of countering racism. Du Bois helped found the Niagara Movement and the NAACP, and became the editor of Crisis, the NAACP's journal. "These attractive titles serve not only as quality report sources but also as general interest titles." - School Library Journal
