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 Scott Holloway explores Du Bois's signature accomplishments while helping readers to better understand his writings in the context of his time as well as ours.
