Black History: Collected Works
Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, W. E. B. Du Bois, James Weldon Johnson, Booker T. Washington, Olaudah Equiano
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
This collection brings together some of the most important writings by black authors from pre- and post-Civil War America. It includes several significant slave narratives -- those of Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Booker T. Washington, and Olaudah Equiano -- as well as The Souls of Black Folk and Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man, two books written in the wake of reconstruction. It paints a vivid, often grim, picture of the experiences of black slaves, and of the racism that persisted after slavery was abolished.
