"Retextualize Du Bois's SSTA (1954)"
Retextualize W.E.B. Du Bois's 'Apologia' (1954) to The Suppression of the African Slave-Trade
— by Robert W. Williams
Retextualizer is used here to engage with W.E.B. Du Bois's "Apologia", which he appended to the 1954 re-publication of his Suppression of the African Slave-Trade by the Social Science Press.
This website offers a page where I initially presented this "Apologia".

Primary Source Notes:
Du Bois's book title, Black Reconstruction, was not italicized in the "Apologia"; neither were "laissez-faire, laissez-passez".
The "Apologia" contained two sets of two-sentence quotations from the original publication (sentences 36 and 37). I have kept them paired together for the purposes of the retextualizations.
Du Bois occasionally capitalized the initial letter of a few nouns (e.g., Slave-Power; Economic Revolution, Sociology).
