Black History Classics Published by SeaWolf Press
From riveting biographies of captive slaves to descriptions of an African-American explorer reaching the North Pole, this collection spans almost a century of writing. It starts with Slave Life in Georgia, published in 1855 and Incidents of a Slave Girl from 1861, and continues through the coverage of the Chicago Race Riots in 1919 and Matthew Henson’s achievement at the North Pole in 1909.
W. E. B. DuBois Classics
William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was an American sociologist, socialist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, writer and editor. Du Bois was one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909. Before that, Du Bois had risen to national prominence as the leader of the Niagara Movement, a group of African-American activists that wanted equal rights for blacks.
The Negro is a fairly comprehensive overview of African-American history.The Souls of Black Folk also holds an important place in social science as one of the early works in the field of sociology.
Booker T. Washington’s Important Contributions
Booker Taliaferro Washington, born in 1856, was an American educator, author, orator, and adviser to multiple presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African American community and of the contemporary black elite. Washington was a key proponent of African-American businesses and one of the founders of the National Negro Business League. His base was the Tuskegee Institute, a historically black college he founded in Tuskegee, Alabama.
SeaWolf Press publishes his books: Character Building,The Future of the American Negro, and his autobiography Up From Slavery.
