The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Dubois


The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Dubois

"The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line..."
W.E.B. Du Bois, one of the most influential thinkers, writers, and civil rights leaders of his time, wrote these prophetic words at the beginning of the century. This collection of essays (many originally published in the Atlantic Monthly) offers a sociological glimpse at the life of African-Americans just after the turn of the century. It is a powerful and profound look at race, identity, politics, and religion that greatly influenced the civil rights movement.

Intellectually Moving

I am continually provoked to a higher level of thought each time I plunge into the depths of this classic work.

Great Travel back and to now

This book was written quite some time ago. It shows that the more things change, the more they stay the same! I am now on a new path to change things for my black sons. Great book!
