This chapter explains the significance of the chapter about Alexander Crummell in The Souls of Black Folk. William Burghardt Du Bois dedicated a chapter in his book to Alexander Crummell, as he considered him to be his role model and guide. This chapter finds that all scholarly analyses of the chapter on Alexander Crummell have failed to appreciate it from a literary perspective, adding subjective views on the motive of the author in adding this chapter to the book. Some scholars have also analyzed the chapter observing that Du Bois included the chapter in the book to show his gratitude and appreciation for the exceptional qualities and sprit of such a great man.
