Yes, read something! Columbia, Missouri: University of Missouri Press, It can feel just a bit like that "dogged strength" the black man needs in order to make it through all that suffering, no? With this confrontation, Young shouts "No! Du Bois is one of the greatest scholar, writer, editor, and civil rights activist. The Souls of Black Folk.

Long to brilliantly explicate the religious nature of the Black Experience through an insightful application and interrogation of descriptive categories signifying that experience found in anthropological studies of African Religion as well as the literary works of Toni Morrison, James Baldwin and most particularly, W.
