The Souls of Black Folk One Hundred Years Later

by Dolan Hubbard

The Souls of Black Folk One Hundred Years Later Synopsis

Published in 1903, The Souls of Black Folk by W. E. B. Du Bois was an immediate achievement, one that moved American philosophy beyond the structures of both pragmatism and positivism while addressing new questions about American social and political history. More than a hundred years later, the influence of Du Bois' critique of the political, social, and economic encumbrances imposed upon blacks in Reconstruction and post-Reconstruction America can still be felt. The Souls of Black Folk: One Hundred Years Later is the first collection of essays to examine Du Bois' work from a variety of academic perspectives, including aesthetics, art history, communications, music, political science, psychology, history, and the classics. The authors' observations establish a rhythm of call and response as they examine the critical depth of a text that has had a profound influence on African American intellectual history. Together, these essays demonstrate how The Souls of Black Folk influenced teaching practices in such a way as to create a pedagogy of inclusion. Scholars, teachers, and students of American studies and African American studies will find this collection an essential overview of a book that changed the course of American intellectual history.

The Souls of Black Folk One Hundred Years Later Press Reviews

It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. --W. E. B. Du Bois
