uplifting thoughts

Nathan Newman brings us an uplifting reminder for this fine Sunday morning:

As DuBois himself wrote, “I would have been hailed with approval if I had died at fifty. At seventy-five, my death was practically requested.”

For those who may have read The Souls of Black Folks, written by a much younger DuBois, it’s worth remembering that his life went on for decades more and his US public career would only end, as so many other careers did, in the criminalization of belief that was the post-war anti-Communist crusade.

Have a good one!
