Abstract

Manuscripts of over three hundred speeches delivered by Du Bois, ranging from his college commencement addresses at Fisk and Harvard through the end of his life. The bulk of these date from the 1940s and 1950s and reflect the gradual development of Du Bois' thought on world peace, colonialism, developments in Africa and America, and many other subjects. Many speeches relate to his 1950 campaign for the U.S. Senate. While many of the speeches were printed, Du Bois frequently revised the spoken version considerably before publication, and thus the original manuscripts offer important insight into Du Bois' process of writing, his working style, and changes in thought and presentation.

The titles of speeches in the inventory are generally those supplied by Du Bois, except where square brackets indicate a title supplied by the cataloger.
