The Souls of Black Folk

The Souls of Black Folk

A classic text on race in America from 1903.

Since its publication in April 1903, The Souls of Black Folk has justifiably been celebrated as the definitive text of the African American literary tradition. A seemingly modest collection of fourteen pieces framed by a preface and afterword, the book made an immediate impact on American political debate, erupting with the sudden brilliance of ‘fireworks going off in a cemetery’.
