“O World of Worlds, How Shall Man Make You One?”1

(p.159) Conclusion
W. E. B. Du Bois and The Souls of Black Folk

Stephanie J. Shaw

University of North Carolina Press

The concluding chapter finds how the publication of The Souls of Black Folk in 1903 had a significant impact on its readers. The ideas and views expressed in that book significantly influenced young black American readers. Many of the young black people who read the book were considerably impressed by the inspiring language and words expressed in the book and made an effort to adopt the same ideas and principles to improve the condition of their own lives and that of their whole community. The book also inspired a lot of young black people to continue in higher education. It also encouraged policy changes for the overall welfare of the black community to eliminate discrimination against them on the ground of the color of their skin.
