W. E. B. Du Bois's Data Portraits
(997 items available)
The colourful charts, graphs, and maps presented at the 1900 Paris Exposition by famed sociologist and black rights activist W. E. B. Du Bois offered a view into the lives of black Americans, conveying a literal and figurative representation of "the colour line". W. E. B. Du Bois's Data Portraits collects the complete set of graphics in full colour for the first time, making their insights and innovations available to a contemporary imagination.As Maria Popova wrote, these data portraits shaped how "Du Bois himself thought about sociology, informing the ideas with which he set the world ablaze three years later in The Souls of Black Folk".
