A Treasury of Du Bois' Writings

As we begin this last week of Black History Month it is with great excitement that I blog about one of the library's most recent acquisitions. The Oxford W.E.B. Dubois is a 19-volume collection of writings by one of the great minds of the 20th century. These works are on display in the library foyer, and all of these volumes are now available for checkout.

One thing I learned about this author and scholar while working with these books over the past week is that he was also a fiction writer. I have always associated Du Bois with titles such as The Souls of Black Folk, yet five books in this group are works of fiction.

Here's the complete list of works that comprise the Oxford Du Bois collection:
