John Brown a biography

A moving cultural biography of abolitionist martyr John Brown, by one of the most important African-American intellectuals of the twentieth century. In the history of slavery and its legacy, John Brown looms large as a hero whose deeds partly precipitated the Civil War. As Frederick Douglass wrote: "When John Brown stretched forth his arm .... the clash of arms was at hand." DuBois's biography brings Brown stirringly to life and is a neglected classic. From the Trade Paperback edition.
