about this book

Introduction by Arnold Rampersad

W.E.B. Du Bois was the foremost black intellectual of his time. The Souls of Black Folk is Du Bois's collection of fourteen beautifully written essays, which record the cruelties of racism, celebrate the strength and pride of black America, and explore the "double-consciousness" of African-American life. By turns lyrical, historical, and autobiographical, Du Bois's masterwork has influenced such modern-day scholars and social thinkers as Cornel West and Henry Louis Gates, Jr., among others. It is an invaluable text, not only in African-American studies, but in any field of American social and cultural thought.
