    “The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line,” writes Du Bois, in one of the most prophetic works in all of American literature. First published in 1903, this collection of 15 essays dared to describe the racism that prevailed at that time in America—and to demand an end to it. Du Bois’ writing draws on his early experiences, from teaching in the hills of Tennessee, to the death of his infant son, to his historic break with the conciliatory position of Booker T. Washington.

    ESK says: "Essays of 'life and love and strife and failure'"
    "One of the best re-reads for me!"

    If you could sum up The Souls of Black Folk in three words, what would they be?

    This is still relevant.


    Any additional comments?

    Every day I hear someone say racism is dead. Racism is not dead and W. E. B. Du Bois essays are still sadly relevant in this day and age.
