Abstract

Abstract:

Du Bois's most frequently studied relationship to the topic of Black children has focused on his publications directly addressed to them. However, throughout his life, Du Bois wrote extensively on the significance of Black children, and by unearthing unexamined archival records and writings, this article argues Du Bois put into practice a form of "transfiguring childhood." This insight into Du Bois's treatment of childhood both deepens the level of understanding of his concepts of racial consciousness and also provides context and a historical explanation for the development of his magazine intended specifically for children, The Brownies' Book.
