  1. I think you “got” du Bois just fine and did him proud. What a moving quote. With all our technology I am still watching the dumbing down of America, so many choosing to throw away the education, the thirst for learning, that du Bois was discussing.

  2. The Souls of Black Folk should be required reading in way more classes than it is. DuBois is so articulate, and so much of what’s in that book is still relevant, still resonates. Excellent choice, and I think you choose an excellent quotation.
