Abstract:
"The Souls of Black Folk was published in 1903 as a collection of essays from W.E.B. Du Bois, an African-American sociologist who wrote frequently about his experiences as a Black man for magazines and other publications. This audiobook is comprised of 14 essays, with Du Bois's overall message being that Black people were equally worthy of the rights of white people: to vote, to receive a good quality education, and to be treated justly. He explains that every Black person lives with a 'double-consciousness,' always having to focus on how they seem themselves, but how the world around perceives them as well. The part of the African American consciousness devoted to outward perception is always living in tension with their own self-perception due to the negative perceptions by the world around them." -- Provided by publisher.
