W.E.B. Du Bois’ “From The Souls of Black Folk” is important to read because the reader is able to see the growth of America in its educational and civic barriers it once possessed. In the article “From The Souls of Black Folk” Du Bois praises the work of Booker T. Washington, although the two have some different thoughts they were very passionate about helping the people who were once slaves adjust to their new freedom. The most important thing that Du Bois talks about in his article is education.
