BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 13 December 1939
BOOK REVIEW New Books In Library By Abdu l Disu Black Folks : Then and Now ( By W . E . Bur ghardt Du Bois ) All students of Negro History will remember the name of this veteran writer who has written several volumes on the history and achievements of the ‘ black ‘ peoples of Negro America and Dark Africa . His latest book , which I will not surmise to be the last in view of his old age , makes interesting and instructive reading , At the beginning of his work , Dr . Du Bois apologizes for a compilation which he cannot characterize as one of exact scholarship , for , as he says , far too few studies in history and sociology are .
