When The Souls of Black Folk was first published in 1903, it had a galvanizing effect on the conversation about race in America—and it remains both a touchstone in the literature of African America and a beacon in the fight for civil rights. Believing that one can know the "soul" of a race by knowing the souls of individuals, W. E. B. Du Bois combines history and stirring autobiography to reflect on the magnitude of American racism and to chart a path forward against oppression, and introduces the now-famous concepts of the color line, the veil, and double-consciousness.


William Edward Burghardt Du Bois (1868-1963) was a historian, social scientist, journalist, and civil rights activist best known for his landmark 1903 book The Souls of Black Folk. He was a co-founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in 1909 and served for many years as the editor of its monthly magazine, The Crisis.
