Reconsidering the Souls of Black Folk: Thoughts on the Groundbreaking Classic Work of W.E.B. DuBois Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Syndicated columnist Stanley Crouch teams up with noted journalist Playthell Benjamin for this thought-provoking look back at The Souls of Black Folk, the epochal, prophetic work by the great African-American intellectual W.E.B. DuBois. In that classic book of essays, first published 100 years ago, DuBois took an autobiographical approach as he reflected on many facets of black life following the Emancipation Proclamation, and boldly challenged the opinions of his esteemed contemporary, Booker T. Washington. Presented in an attractive, streamlined paperback edition with a new introduction, Reconsidering the Souls of Black Folk is a fitting tribute to a literary and sociological triumph on the 100th anniversary of its publication.

Synopsis:

Presents an incisive reassessment of the classic work on the African-American experience by W. E. B. Du Bois, first published one hundred years ago. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
