Du Bois was also a prolific author of novels- autobiographical accounts- innumerable editorials and journalistic pieces- and several works of history. Black Reconstruction in America tells and interprets the story of the twenty years of Reconstruction from the point of view of newly liberated African Americans. Though lambasted by critics at the time of its publication in 1935- Black Reconstruction has only grown in historical and literary importance.
