Abstract: W.E. B. Du Bois’ 1903 classic The Souls of Black Folk opens with a haunting question: “How does it feel to be a problem?” According to Du Bois, being black in America was to be “an outcast and a stranger in mine own house,” separated from the majority culture by a “veil.” This reading-intensive seminar examines how Du Bois and other major black theorists from both sides of the Atlantic addressed the “problem” of blackness, racial identity and race relations in the nineteenth- and twentieth centuries.
Description: This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by the course instructor.
