Saving the Race
W. E. B. Du Bois's The Souls of Black Folk is one of the most influential books ever published in this country. In it, Du Bois wrote that "the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line," a prophecy that is as fresh and poignant today as when it first appeared in print in 1903. Saving the Race reexamines the legacy of Du Bois and his "color line" prophecy from a modern viewpoint. The author, Rebecca Carroll, a biracial woman who was reared by white parents, not only provides her own personal perspective but invites eighteen well-known African Americans to share their ideas and opinions about what Du Bois's classic text means today.
