W. E. B. Du Bois
Edited by Nahum Dimitri Chandler
The Problem of the Color Line at the Turn of the Twentieth Century: The Essential Early Essays assembles essential essays by William Edward Burghardt Du Bois – thinker, writer, scholar, activist, leader – from half a dozen years on each side, respectively, of the turning of the twentieth century, from 1894 to early 1906. In this essays are the first formulations of some of Du Bois’s most famous ideas, namely, “the veil,” “double-consciousness,” and the “problem of the color line.” Clustered around the turn of the century, they comprise a kind of essential companion to The Souls of Black Folk: Essays and Sketches.
