"The Souls Of Black Folk"

Simply amazing book. I definitely recommend all to read if you haven't read this book already.

An excerpt from "The Souls Of Black Folk" by W.E.B. Dubois

"I have seen a land right merry with Sun, where children sing, and rolling hills lie like passioned women wanton with harvest.  And there in the King's Highway sat and sits a figure veiled and bowed, by which the traveler's footsteps hasten as they go.  On the tainted air broods fear. Three centuries' thought has been the raising and unveiling of that bowed human heart, and now behold a century new for the duty and the deed. The problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color-line." - W. E. B. Dubois
