Overview

The Souls of Black Folk is a classic work of American literature by W. E. B. Du Bois. It is a seminal work in the history of sociology, and a cornerstone of African-American literary history.

The book, published in 1903, contains several essays on race, some of which had been previously published in Atlantic Monthly magazine. Du Bois drew from his own experiences to develop this groundbreaking work on being African-American in American society. Outside of its notable place in African-American history, The Souls of Black Folk also holds an important place in social science as one of the early works to deal with sociology.

Very good book I read the book in college, and the second time I get a better understanding of Du Bois.

This book "rocked my socks" from page one. DuBois writes, not as a victim of society, but as the proud member of an advanced society. He describes the "ways" -- the culture, society, beliefs, traditions, songs, meanings, faith, strengths, and hopes of African American people. He sets many misbeliefs right. He corrects many wrong impressions. He speaks the unspoken for the silent. This powerful book gave permission to a culture, validations for success in education, and political rise to the civil rights movements after his death. A graduate of Harvard and a founder of universities and the NAACP, DuBois is an "intellectual engine" for his generation. I found this book of essays a profound and important keystone in American history.
