description

W.E.B. Du Bois said, on the launch of his groundbreaking 1903 treatise, The Souls of Black Folk, "for the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line", a prescient statement. Setting out to show "the strange meaning of being black here in the dawning of the twentieth century," Du Bois explains the meaning of the emancipation, and its effect, and his views on the roles of the leaders of his race.
