Du Bois was one of the foremost intellectuals of his time, and one of the most influential black men in American history.
"The Souls of Black Folk" is an exceptional collection of essays on racism in America written with remarkable insight and knowledge, serving as /5. The Comet is a s science fiction short story, that explores the relationship between Jim Davis and Julia after a comet hits New York and unleashes toxic gases that kill everyone except them.
Mr. Dubois layers his science fiction story by addressing the racial economic divide as Jim Davis is revealed to be a poor black man and Julia is revealed as a wealthy white women. His father, Alexander Du Bois, cloaked under a stern, austere demeanor a passionate revolt against the world.
