"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....

Such old empty houses, or the homes of the masters' sons. Sad and bitter tales lie hidden back of those white doors, --tales of poverty, of struggle, of disappointment. A revolution such as that of '63 is a terrible thing; they that rose rich in the morning often slept in paupers' beds. Beggars and vulgar speculators rose to rule over them, and their children went astray. See yonder sad-colored house, with its cabins and fences and glad crops! It is not glad within; last month the prodigal son of the struggling father wrote home from the city for money. Money! Where was it to come from? And so the son rose in the night and killed his baby, and killed his wife, and shot himself dead. And the world passed on. I remember wheeling around a bend in the ro...

The Souls of Black Folk Book Description :

The Souls of Black Folk is a 1903 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 literature. The book contains several essays on race, some of which the magazine Atlantic Monthly had previously published. To develop this work, Du Bois drew from his own experiences as an African American in American society. Outside of its notable relevance in African-American history, The Souls of Black Folk also holds an important place in social science as one of the early works in the field of sociology. In The Souls of Black Folk, Du Bois used the term "double consciousness", perhaps taken from Ralph Waldo Emerson ("The Transcendentalist" and "Fate"), applying it to the idea ...
