The Souls of White Folk

A look at the other side of the veil

“On the pale, white faces which the great billows whirl upward to my tower I see again and again, often and still more often, a writing of human hatred, a deep and passionate hatred, vast by the very vagueness of its expressions”

— W.E.B. Du Bois, 1918
