really liked it
Recommended for: anyone interested in cultures.

From the very first essay, DuBois will astound the reader with a palpable passion for his people. With a probing technique that seeks Messianic responses to difficult questions, DuBois concurrently shows the baseness and the pinnacle of the human condition. The in-between transformative stage becomes his focus, as he seeks to explain how freed slaves became a people struggling to survive in a world that wanted no part of their heritage, intellect, or identity.
