In 1961 Folkways Records released a unique recording - W.E.B DuBois -- a recorded autobiography  interviewed by Moses Asch. The grand old man of African American politics of the 20th century was, by 1961, in his early 90s, so this was a very special undertaking. The record sleeve used Charles White's distinctive portrait of DuBois, which had been previously appeared in print, in 1951, in a small pamphlet, entitled I Take my Stand for Peace.
