Chad L. Williams, a professor of African American and African studies professor at Brandeis University, has made a stunning archival discovery that sheds new light on the life and work of W.E.B Du Bois. Williams has uncovered an 800-page unfinished and unpublished manuscript by Du Bois, which he has used as the basis for his latest book, “The Wounded World: W.E.B. Du Bois and the First World War.”
In this groundbreaking book, Williams examines the experiences of African American soldiers during World War I and their efforts to fight for civil rights both abroad and at home. Drawing on extensive archival research, including Du Bois’ personal papers, Williams offers a vivid picture of the struggles and sacrifices of these soldiers.
In this audio Q&A, Williams discusses his groundbreaking archival discovery, the significance of Du Bois’ manuscript in shaping our understanding of American history, and the profound insights it offers into the ongoing struggle for civil rights and social justice in America.
