These essays on the black experience in America range from sociological studies of the African American community to illuminating discourses on religion and “Negro music,” and remain essential reading in our so-called “post racial age.” A new introduction by Jonathan Holloway explores (W.E.B.) Du Bois’s signature accomplishments while helping readers to better understand his writings in the context of his time as well as ours.
