Today’s Literary Birthday

Civil rights activist, historian, author and editor, W.E. B. Dubois was born this day in 1868. Dubois was the first African-American to earn a PhD from Harvard University. He was one of the founders of the NAACP.  Dubois wrote three autobiographies and edited the NAACP’s newspaper The Crisis for 25 years, but his best known work was The Souls of Black Folks. Martin Luther King said, “Dr. Dubois’s greatest virtue was his committed empathy with all the oppressed and his divine dissatisfaction with all forms of injustice.”

He is best known for his series of Prey novels featuring police detective Lucas Davenport. He also has a series about the computer hacker, Kidd, and has recently begun a third with another detective, Virgil Flowers, as the protagonist.
