BIOGRAPHY of a Race," a major biography of W.E.B. DuBois, the black economist, historian and civil rights leader whom the New York Times called "the most outspoken, eloquent and influential black American," was published last fall to glowing reviews.This important work by David Levering Lewis chronicles William Edward Burghardt DuBois' life from his 1868 birth (in Massachusetts) through 1919. A second volume will carry DuBois through his death in Ghana in 1963.And no doubt it will be sketchy about DuBois' nearly two decades in Baltimore from 1939 to 1957.

The choral works of late 19th-century French composer Theodore Dubois are a lot like the murals of David and other less-than-first-rate "objets d'art" that take up so much space in the Louvre.While not particularly memorable for the artistry within, they are passionate, heart-on-the-sleeve, super-charged affairs that are, ultimately, a whole lot of fun to sing and hear. Great music, no, but eminently likable pieces worth doing with all the pizazz a chorus can muster.In the most upbeat yet relaxed performance of the Arundel Vocal Arts Society I've yet attended, conductor Ava Shield and her singers entered fully into the ingratiating spirit of these French works.

In an earlier era, Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech before the National Prayer Breakfast last week would have been a really big deal rather than mere fodder for a brief squall on Twitter and cable news. Born in crushing poverty to an illiterate single mother dedicated to seeing her children succeed, Dr. Carson became the head of the department of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions when he was 33. He's been a black celebrity role model ever since. Even if you didn't like the substance of what Dr. Carson had to say at the breakfast, his speech made for great political theater.

"So many people have condemned the play for its sordid theme," Vivien Leigh said in a 1950s interview about Tennessee Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire," the vehicle for one of her most indelible achievements as an actress. "To me it is an infinitely moving plea for tolerance for all weak, frail creatures, blown about like leaves before the wind of circumstance." That plea seemed more affecting than ever as the Sydney Theatre Company's production of "Streetcar" unfolded Saturday night at the Kennedy Center, with Cate Blanchett inhabiting the central role of Blanche DuBois.

My husband, Tom, and I live in Elkridge. In December and January, we went on a five-week adventure, traveling through Australia and New Zealand. In Rotorua, New Zealand, we took this shot of the steam pools. Rotorua is on the North Island among a thermally active region with volcanoes and geysers. It is a center of the native Maori culture. The Baltimore Sun welcomes submissions for "My Best Shot." Photos should have been taken within the past year and be accompanied by a description of when and where you took the picture and your name, address and phone number.

More than 20 years after he gave the first reading from his acclaimed "King: A Biography" at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, David Levering Lewis returns to Baltimore to speak and sign copies of his Pulitzer- and National Book Award-nominated "W. E. B. DuBois: Biography of a Race" in the Pratt auditorium at 2 p.m. today.Dr. Lewis, an affable man with a dry wit and bemused tone, taught at Morgan State University from 1966 to 1970. The 57-year-old historian, who was educated at Columbia and Fisk universities and the London School of Economics, saw his DuBois project as "a major missing biography."
