The souls of black folk

W. E. B. 1868-1963 Du Bois

Sound recording - 2010

"The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line," writes Du Bois. First published in 1903, this collection of fifteen essays dared to describe the racism which 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. Du Bois received a Ph. D. from Harvard 1895 and became a professor of economics and history at Atlanta University. His dynamic leadership in the cause of social reform on behalf of his fellow blacks anticipated and inspired much of the black activism of the 1960s. The Souls of Black Folk is a classic in the literature of civil rights.
