THE SOULS OF BLACK FOLK by W.E.B. Du Bois, Chapter 2: "Of the Dawn of Freedom"
W.E.B. Du Bois is a major thinker in the American political thought tradition and had a towering influence upon the study of race and racism in the United States. However, we rarely take the time to appreciate the entire sweep of his classic work. In this series, historian, scholar and Clinton Church Restoration board member Dr. Frances Jones-Sneed will moderate a weekly discussion of each of the fourteen chapters in THE SOULS OF BLACK FOLK, W.E.B. Du Bois' best-known work. She will be joined by guest scholars each week for a discussion of themes and concepts that are perennial in African American life and culture.


Chapter 2: "Of the Dawn of Freedom"
Guest scholar: Dr. Barbara Krauthamer

We recommend a version of THE SOULS OF BLACK FOLK that includes the music and poetry in the beginning of each chapter, such as the Dover Thrift edition. Note that the preferred versions of the book have "Of" in the beginning of the first 13 chapters. The book is also available at no charge at gutenberg.org.
