The African American Community in Rural New England : W. E. B. Du Bois and the Clinton A. M. E. Zion Church Paperback / softback

Description

The African American Community in Rural New England is the often heroic tale of a small group of African Americans who founded and have maintained their church in a small New England town for nearly 140 years.

The church is the Clinton African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church and the town is Great Barrington, Massachusetts - the hometown of the leading African American scholar and activist W.

E. B. Du Bois. Du Bois attended the church as a youth and wrote about it; these writings are one source for this history.

The book gives readers a broad view of the details of the church's history and recounts the story of its growth.

Du Bois plays a crucial role in the national fight for social justice, of which the church was and remains an important part.
