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.
