The year 2023 marks the momentous 20th anniversary of the publication of The Wisdom of W.E.B. Du Bois, a literary masterpiece that pays homage to the intellectual and philosophical legacy of one of America's greatest scholars, W.E.B. Du Bois. Published as part of the esteemed Philosophical Library Series with Kensington Books in 2003, this remarkable work subsequently found its voice as an MP3 audiobook, performed by Catherine Byers, and later as a Kindle eBook in 2018. Its creation and subsequent impact on academia and beyond provide us with ample reason to celebrate this significant event.
