Introduction to the Sociology of W.E.B. Du Bois
by Robert Wortham
W.E.B. Du Bois was the founder
of the Atlanta School of sociology, writing more than a dozen books in
almost as many years. One of his significant contributions to modern
sociology was his pioneering work in the use of empirical data which include
census materials and original surveys.
Edward Burghardt Du Bois and the Concepts of Race, Class and Gender
by Angela J. Hattery and Earl Smith
Hattery and Smith argue that Du
Bois was three generations ahead of the sociological literature on race,
class and gender. His work today shows its contemporaneous nature,
with newly-minted words such as standpoint epistemology reflecting
some of the pioneering ideas introduced by Du Bois.
and the Sociological Imagination of W.E.B. Du Bois
by Edward J. Blum
Du Bois thought that Christianity
needs to free itself from the burdens of the history of slavery and harken
back to what he considered the original teachings of Christ and a true
renewal of Christianity.
Du Bois and the Atlanta Sociological Laboratory
by Earl Wright II
The Atlanta University school of
sociology was probably the first school of American sociology. Wright
gives a history of the rise of the Atlanta Sociological Laboratory.
