W. E. B. Du Bois’s seminal treatise on the African American
The problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color
W. E. B. Du Bois was arguably the most progressive African American
leader of the early twentieth century, and this collection of

historic concept of “double-consciousness” as it pertains to that
experience, The Souls of Black Folk is an
extraordinary literary achievement—a provocative, profound, and
courageous clarion call.
