    While reading Ta Nehisi Coates Between the World and Me, I asked myself whether any other book offered such penetrating insight into the black experience in equally impressive prose The first name that came to me was The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B Du Bois The Souls of Black Folk was published in 1903, and just as the two directions of black leadership in the tumultuous
