by W. E. Burghardt Du Bois (Author), David Levering Lewis (Introduction)


The pioneering work in the study of the role of Black Americans during Reconstruction by the most influential Black intellectual of his time.

Hailed at the time, Black Reconstruction in America 1860–1880 has justly been called a classic.
