Overview

DuBois was the most influential black intellectual in American history, one whose voice and thoughts continue to enlighten and educate readers today, and this is a collection of his most inspired short-form writing.

Collecting essays and poems from publications such as The Atlantic and The Journal of Race Development, this 1920 volume-provocative and aggressive and unflattering to the dominant white culture-raised the ire of many mainstream critics of the day, which continues to make it all the more valuable a read today.

Included here are:

. "The Shadow of Years"
. "The Souls of White Folks"
. "The Hands of Ethiopia"
. "Of Work and Wealth"
. "The Servant in the House"
. "Of the Ruling of Men"
. "The Damnation of Women"
. "The Immortal Child"
. "Of Beauty and Death"
. "The Comet"
. and more

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.
