"The Souls of Black Folk"

The Souls of Black Folk (1903) by African American historian, sociologist, and civil rights activist W. E. B. Du Bois is one of the most widely read works of American literature. In this work, Du Bois established groundbreaking ideas relevant to Black identity, notably the concepts of the "veil" of race and of the "double-consciousness" or peculiarly bifurcated identity experienced by Black people in the United States against the backdrop of Jim Crow and White supremacy.
