Broad Sympathies in a Narrow World: The Legacy of W.E.B. Du Bois by Dr. Sandra Staton-Taiwo is a collection of poetic reflections on the public and private life of an American intellectual giant. For more than half of the twentieth-century, Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois (1868—1963) was a major voice in every significant debate concerning political policies and strategies impacting the lives of African Americans and other people of color. As the first African American to earn a Ph.D. at Harvard, and then a co-founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and editor of its journal, The Crisis, Du Bois’s life’s work as a scholar, writer, and political spokesperson rendered him the most prestigious African American leader in the United States. He also enjoyed international acclaim for his leading role in the movements for independence of African nations and Pan-African unity.
