About the Author

W.E.B. DuBois (1868-1963) was an African-American sociologist, civil rights activist, and author. He was one of the founding members of the NAACP, and he is well-known for believing on full civil rights and disagreeing with Booker T. Washington’s argument that blacks remain subservient. His most famous book, The Souls of Black Folk, defines the term "double-consciousness" and remains a cornerstone of African-American literature.

This book is a disappointment. I expected more because of the author. "The Souls of Black Folk" is one of the greatest pieces of African American Literature. W. E. B. DuBois is one of the greatest intellectuals in world history. Yet, this novel is not a success. The plot does not flow. Instead, it jumps around. DuBois tries to mix politics, intrigue and romance, but he fails. He crams too much into a badly written love story. I do not recommend this book. I would not recommend it to DuBois disciples.
