Worlds of Color
By W. E. B. DU BOIS

Worlds of Color is the third book in Dr. Du Bois' great historical novel, The Black Flame, written in the form of a trilogy. The first volume, The Ordeal of Mansart, was published in 1957, followed in 1959 by the second volume, Mansart Builds a School.

In this magnificent work, the author, widely regarded as the dean of American letters, has given us a monumental study of what it has meant to be a Negro in the United States from 1870 to the present. In it one finds Dr. Du Bois' deeply felt observations on the meaning of color in England, in Europe, in Asia, in the West Indies, in Africa.

And because Dr. Du Bois' own life —the life not merely of a witness and observer but of an active participant and vital leader—mirrors faithfully the dramatic events he describes,
there is never any deviation from his central theme—the invincible sweep and drive of the heroic, stubborn, many-sided struggle of the Negro people for full equality.

Worlds of Color brings the story of the Mansarts up to date, revealing the author's prophetic insights into the massive African upheaval that is shaking the rotten structure of world colonialism to its diseased foundations.

Across the vast stage of this historical novel move such distinguished figures as Theodore Roosevelt, Booker T. Washington, Tom Watson, Oswald Garrison Villard, Florence Kelley, Joel Spingarn, John Haynes Holmes, Harry Hopkins and his "Boss," Franklin Delano Roosevelt, George Washington Carver, Stephen Wise, Paul Robeson, Kwame Nkrumah, and many, many others.

It is a book, as Dr. Herbert Aptheker characterized it, "written with poetic imagery, incisive wit, fierce devotion to justice, and absolute commitment to truth, qualities which have characterized the entire career of this pre-eminent American."
