Provenzo, Eugene F., Johnson, Guy B., Du Bois, W. E. B.
The publication of the Encyclopedia Africana in 1999 was only the most recent attempt to summarize our knowledge of African and African diaspora peoples. Famed social scientist W.E.B. DuBois was involved in similar projects over half a century earlier. His prospectus for an Encyclopedia of the Negro, a document almost 200 pages long presented to the Phelps-Stokes Fund in 1946, outlined what he saw as the key issues and topics to be covered. This proposal is reproduced here, along with two sample entries DuBois prepared for the project and an analytical introduction from Eugene Provenzo. The project, unfortunately, stalled and was never completed. As a guide to the ideas of America's best known, most prolific thinker on race, this volume will be an essential reference.Provenzo, Eugene F. is the author of 'Encyclopedia of the Negro: Preparatory Volume with Reference Lists and Reports', published 2008 under ISBN 9781598743012 and ISBN 1598743015.
