Excerpt on Alexander Crummel
from “Souls of Black Folk”
by W.E.B. Du Bois
He did his work,–he did it nobly and well; and yet I sorrow that here he worked alone, with so little human sympathy. His name to-day, in this broad land, means little, and comes to fifty million ears laden with no incense of memory or emulation. And herein lies the tragedy of the age: not that men are poor,–all men know something of poverty; not
that men are wicked,–who is good? not that men are ignorant,–what is Truth? Nay, but that men know so little of men.
Before I started my first book, I confessed to my cousin how intimidating this paragraph is. I forgot about it. Now, reminded, I am faced with the same intimidation. Will all of this work on this site disappear with my name? Will the ancestors make me uncover their truths, to die again with it? Shall all be for naught? Is this the tragedy of our age?
Honestly, I’ve nothing better to do, because there’s nothing better to do. Serving our race and God is the best that any person can do.
