This work is the first full-length study to focus solely on W.E.B. DuBois’s efforts to introduce Black Studies into the university curriculum. The book argues that Du Bois's Atlanta University Studies constitute the earliest, most comprehensive examples of Black Studies in American higher education.


“[The work] sparks questions that will generate ideas for further research. For example, how have scholars of the modern 1960s Movement that established the field in the academy expanded upon or been linked to Du Bois’s ideas and plans for the systematic study of people of African descent in America and beyond?” – Prof. Delores P. Aldridge, Emory University

“. . . good addition to the work on DuBois and on Black Studies.” – Prof LaVerne Gyant, Northern Illinois University

“. . . the first book length study . . . to adequately capture [the evolution of Black Studies’s] genealogy in the early work of Du Bois, which [the author] delineates in a fine way.” – Prof. Beverly Guy-Sheftall, Spelman College
