Black History Month 2003: "The Souls of Black Folk: Centennial Reflections"

Exhibit Dates: February 2003
Published in 1903, The Souls of Black Folk by W. E. B. Du Bois was a landmark achievement. The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) states ” It was a publishing event that altered both the political and literary landscape for black people. The book quickly became the manifesto of a tiny emerging cadre of educated blacks and liberal whites who would, by the end of the decade, create the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and embark on the long march against legal segregation.” View the online exhibit
