2015 Reprint of 1947 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. "Can the freedom-loving modern world close its eyes and ears to the exploitation by foreigners of a continent three times the size of Europe and four times that of the United States, and to the centuries-old oppression of its widely scattered people?" This is the question which the author raises in this work. To document his declarations concerning the injustices which have been meted out to blacks by their white exploiters, Dubois recounts the entire history of the continent-the vast contributions of ancient and modern Africa to world culture, industry and development, contributions that have often been overlooked by mainstream historians.
