  1. “popular hero”? that’s a rather odd description for someone who could also be described as founder of and author of, among many others.

  2. That’s true.

    I’m less familiar with the life and work of Du Bois than I am with those of many of the people who appear in the DSW, so in this case I thought I’d let the page I linked to provide the rest of the details, rather than arbitrarily single out The Souls of Black Folk or somesuch.

    But yes — Du Bois’s record as an author and founder was quite extraordinary, and insofar as the silences of the entry suggest that he might not have been, my apologies are due.
