W. E. B. Du Bois's 'reform writings'-with the intention of reforming immoral and unethical behavior-appeared in periodicals directed toward or written on behalf of the African American community. Now for the first time, Du Bois's reform writings, which span over fifty years, have been gathered into one volume.
