From The Souls of Black Folk: "Herein lie buried many things which if read with patience may show the strange meaning of being black here at the dawning of the Twentieth Century.... I have sought here to sketch, in vague, uncertain outline, the spiritual world in which ten thousand thousand Americans live and strive."

From Up From Slavery: "I have begun everything with the idea that I could succeed, and I never had much patience with the multitudes of people who are always ready to explain why one cannot succeed."

From the 1845 text Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: "My mother was named Harriet Bailey." "My father was a white man." "I have had two masters." "...my escape from slavery."

All students of thought should get this historic set. This edition is provided in a slim volume with full text at an affordable price.
