What the community says about The Souls of Black Folk
There are no comments yet!
- "Thinking about this author's life and accomplishments is truly humbling. He grew up and lived through the "Jim Crow" era and became the first African-American to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard. The introduction of the book frames the book very well: "Du Bois achieves in his text a rare combination of pathos and dignity, presenting a portrait of black culture that demands respect." A must read. "
- "This book could be one of the "best" books because it is #68 in category Books > Literature & Fiction > History & Criticism > Regional & Cultural > United States > African American. However the description above cuts off mid-sentence (not sure if that's intentional or not). Depending on if the searcher is looking for fiction or non-fiction, this book could be relevant to their wishes."
- "I first read The Souls of Black Folk in high school. I think this book changed my life. It is some of the best writing I have ever seen. I don't think any other book captures the black experience in America as well as W.E.B. Du Bois does here. I also think his other works are worth reading."
- "This was an interesting book to read due to the fact that all the points the author makes is still relevant today even thought it was written over 100 years ago. Although this non-fiction work emphasizes the stark reality that is America both back in 1903 and now, it is a phenomenal read. The only downside is that parts of the book are rather long-winded, however it makes up for this with the sheer amount of inspiration and calls-to-action found within this book."
