"The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line." Thus speaks W.E.B. Du Bois in "The Souls Of Black Folk," one of the most prophetic and influental works in American literature. In this eloquent collection of essays, first published in 1903, Du Bois dares as no one has before to describe the magnitude of American racism and demand an end to it. He draws on his own life for illustration, from his early experiences teaching in the hills of Tennessee to the death of his infant son and his historic break with the conciliatory position of Booker T. Washington. Far ahead of its time, "The Souls Of Black Folk" both anticipated and inspired much of the black conciousness and activism of the 1960's and is a classic in the literature of civil rights. The elegance of DuBois's prose and the passion of his message are as crucial today as they were upon the book's first publication.… (mere)

Du Bois densely eloquent, compelling, and evocative essays deliver an education into the history of the most terrifying and hideous centuries
in the United States of America. It will inspire action to change our professed Democracy! Even more after the horror of January 6, 2021.

The collection would have rated 5 stars if Du Bois had not revealed his own racial prejudice by repeatedly singling out "Russian Jews"
and their behavior from the rest of "Whites." ( )

The essays in this collection are not the most interesting I've ever read, but their historical importance by one of America's leading civil rights pioneers are immense. Three essays were the most compelling: Of The Training of Black Men, Of the Passing of the First-Born, and Of the Coming of John. The first is about just what it sounds. He argued that black men needed training to be more than farm laborers. They needed education and training in trades and other professions so they could be more than the indentured servants they had become. The second talked about the joy of the birth of his first born and then the agony of his death at 18 months. But his son's death also meant that he was free of the indignities that black people faced daily, so Du Bois was able to find a small silver lining in this tragedy. And the third essay was about a young man who tried to raise himself up by going North and getting an education, but discovering that his education couldn't save him from prejudice and the mistreatment at home in the South. I wonder how Du Bois would see America today given that the full equality he fought for has not yet come to pass.

...we fought their battles, shared their sorrow, mingled our blood with theirs and generation after generation have pleaded with a headstrong, careless people to despise not Justice, Mercy, and Truth, lest the nation be smitten with a curse. Our song, our toil, our cheer, and warning have been given to this nation in blood-brotherhood. Are not these gifts worth giving? Is not this work and striving? Would America have been America without her Negro people? ( )

This book shows how far backward we have moved as a society in the past 120 years. In addition to stunningly beautiful prose, Du Bois analyzed the history of black (and white) people (in America overall, but particularly in the South), the problems of slavery and the then-current reconstruction and post-reconstruction south, and paths to equality for everyone. Unfortunately, I don't think anyone could write something so honest today without being attacked by at least half of society, and many of the issues identified are still problems today.

It was useful that Du Bois had the perspective of a highly educated northerner (first black man to earn a PhD from Harvard, back when a PhD from Harvard meant something...) visiting the South (Atlanta, specifically). When this book was written, the "great migration" to the North had still not happened, so black issues were largely separate North and South. The most interesting part for me was how a large group, mostly oppressed/uneducated/powerless at the time, had to come to terms with a small subset becoming highly educated -- and whether that subset would then work for their own interests or try to uplift everyone else.

Very articulate, wonderful writer. Challenging subject matter. So clear and heart wrenching. I listened and read this with Kindle/Audible's whispersync. A terrific experience. ( )

As February is Black History Month, I wanted to read something about this subject. I looked through my TBR shelves, and I found a couple of books that fit. I picked The Souls of Black Folk because I had it since 2007, and I thought it was about time to read.
I believe it is a book that you need to listen to through the audio format; I found two narrators. The truth is my book includes music and songs.
I am not big on non-fiction books, especially books that written in essay format. It reminds me of school and college.
This book expanded my knowledge of African-American history and sociology. Yes, I studied American history a long time ago, and I know about the Civil War between the north and the south of the United States. I watched movies like Roots, 12 Years a Slave, and The Butler. This book makes you think about how people used and still treat one of the most important democracies in the world.
In this piece of literature, you also learn Du Bois' biography. I am happy that I picked up this book. ( )
