Sometimes I wander why I read the books I do. Sometimes
I read for guilty pleasure, and sometimes for knowledge.
However, I have now idea why I bought "The souls of black
folks" by DuBois. The book was published in 1903 and
discusses the problems of black Americans after slavery
was abolished. There is a weird feel to the book, because it
is written in a classical Princeton style, but it deals
with poverty and much humiliation.
