John Brown (Modern Library Classics)
- Publish Date: 2001-07-10
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: W.E.B. Du Bois
A moving cultural biography of abolitionist martyr John Brown, by one of the most important African-American intellectuals of the twentieth century.
In the history of slavery and its legacy, John Brown looms large as a hero whose deeds partly precipitated the Civil War. As Frederick Douglass wrote: When John Brown stretched forth his arm ... the clash of arms was at hand. DuBois's biography brings Brown stirringly to life and is a neglected classic.
