Dubois (1868–1963) was a African American author and civil rights activist who focused on advancing education and representation for African Americans. The last of his three autobiographies, this work expanded on his previous essays to provide a new reflective perspective on his nine decades of life. DuBois left the reader with thoughts on how to improve America in his postlude, saying, “I know the United States… It is my country and the land of my fathers … But it is selling its birthright. It is betraying its mighty destiny."
