The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois
This book's largely autobiographical chapters take the reader through the maze of African-American life after the Emancipation Proclamation: from poverty, sharecropping, illiteracy, and lynching, to the heights of humanity reached by the spiritual 'sorrow songs' that gave birth to gospel music and the blues.
