|The Souls of Black Folk (1903)
The Souls of Black Folk is a classic work of African-American literature by W.E.B. Du Bois. The book, published in 1903, contains several essays on race, some of which had been previously published in Atlantic Monthly magazine. Du Bois drew from his own experiences to develop this groundbreaking work on being African-American in American society. Outside of its notable place in African-American history, The Souls of Black Folk also holds an important place in social science as one of the early works to deal with sociology.— Excerpted from The Souls of Black Folk on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
