"The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line." Thus speaks W.E.B. Du Bois in "The Souls Of Black Folk," one of the most prophetic and influental works in American literature. In this eloquent collection of essays, first published in 1903, Du Bois dares as no one has before to describe the magnitude of American racism and demand an end to it. He draws on his own life for illustration, from his early experiences teaching in the hills of Tennessee to the death of his infant son and his historic break with the conciliatory position of Booker T. Washington. Far ahead of its time, "The Souls Of Black Folk" both anticipated and inspired much of the black conciousness and activism of the 1960's and is a classic in the literature of civil rights. The elegance of DuBois's prose and the passion of his message are as crucial today as they were upon the book's first publication.… (lisätietoja)

Recent books on anti-racism are great for their currentness, their awareness of the times, and their ability to help apply practical ways to effect change. But to truly learn about the depths of racism without experiencing it yourself, also means to learn about the history of racism and the people who helped shape that history. W.E.B Du Bois was a sociologist, civil rights activist, and author in the late 19th, early 20th century. He was also adamantly opposed to another prominent Black leader, Booker T. Washington.
Du Bois opposed the Atlanta Compromise, an agreement crafted by Booker T. Washington, that said Southern black people would work and submit to white rule in order to receive basic economic opportunities. The Souls of Black Folk is Du Bois brilliant collection of essays that rebuke that compromise. Du Bois played a major role in developing a strategy that dominated most of the black protests in 20th century America. In this book, he so eloquently states that it is beneath any human to beg and compromise for rights that inherently belong to them as human beings. He stood up to Booker T. Washington, who at the time was the most prominent black leader in America, stating Washington was actually perpetuating black oppression.

I picked up this book since Dubois is being extensively covered by Peter Adamson’s and Chike Jeffers’ Africana Philosophy podcast. He is undoubtedly an important US thinker, and it is well worth being acquainted with both him and his ideas.

I debated whether to give the book a 3 or 4 star. The description of the difficulties of African American life under “Jim Crow” is vivid and gives important insights into this period. It’s at its best when telling the stories of individuals. Unfortunately, those stories sometimes veer into over sentimentality. Dubois is no Toni Morrison (although apparently he was an influence on her and many other Black American writers).

Dubois has many interesting ideas, which he doesn’t spend enough time elaborating on in this book. He also is a man of his times, and he is influenced by contemporaneous ideas on “race character”, which often makes his thoughts sound quaint, or worse, even racist.

As for his bone to pick with Washington, which he spends a lot of time on in this book, listen to the podcast to get some alternative views and insights on these two men and their ideas (and a whole lot more besides).

Despite my giving it 3 stars, I still would recommend reading it ( )

This book looks at everything, things I've never thought about when it comes to around the time of the end of slavery of blacks in the US. It talks about all the issues. Just because it was illegal, didn't mean everything fell into a good place for anyone involved. It talks about black/white problems and problems between blacks and other blacks. It's worth reading for sure. ( )

Du Bois densely eloquent, compelling, and evocative essays deliver an education into the history of the most terrifying and hideous centuries
in the United States of America. It will inspire action to change our professed Democracy! Even more after the horror of January 6, 2021.

The collection would have rated 5 stars if Du Bois had not revealed his own racial prejudice by repeatedly singling out "Russian Jews"
and their behavior from the rest of "Whites." ( )

This book shows how far backward we have moved as a society in the past 120 years. In addition to stunningly beautiful prose, Du Bois analyzed the history of black (and white) people (in America overall, but particularly in the South), the problems of slavery and the then-current reconstruction and post-reconstruction south, and paths to equality for everyone. Unfortunately, I don't think anyone could write something so honest today without being attacked by at least half of society, and many of the issues identified are still problems today.

It was useful that Du Bois had the perspective of a highly educated northerner (first black man to earn a PhD from Harvard, back when a PhD from Harvard meant something...) visiting the South (Atlanta, specifically). When this book was written, the "great migration" to the North had still not happened, so black issues were largely separate North and South. The most interesting part for me was how a large group, mostly oppressed/uneducated/powerless at the time, had to come to terms with a small subset becoming highly educated -- and whether that subset would then work for their own interests or try to uplift everyone else.
