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.

A most brilliant book, published in 1898, and highlighting extraordinary scholarship, not often seen today. Few works are written with such clean prose, driving home the lessons of history in stunning clarity and power. A must read. By analogy, the failure of our "founders" to address the question of slavery and its irrefutable immorality suggests a calamity far greater than the civil war when one contemplates the same fecklessness and dithering concerning the moral imperative of "global warming" and the same failure to act on political and economic excuses. Most instructive.
