Famed sociologist, writer, and activist W.E.B. Du Bois fundamentally changed the representation of Black Americans with his exhibition of data visualizations at the 1900 Paris Exposition. Beautiful in design and powerful in content, these data portraits make visible a wide spectrum of African American culture, from advances in education to the lingering effects of slavery. They convey a literal and figurative representation of what Du Bois famously referred to as "the color line," collected here in full color for the first time, and the book also contains numerous black and white photographs.
