Summary
"In 1899, the great African American scholar, W.E.B. Du Bois, published The Philadelphia Negro, the first systematic case study of an African American community and one of the foundations of American sociology. Du Bois prophesied that the "color line" would be "the problem of the twentieth century." One hundred years later, Problem of the Century reflects upon his prophecy, exploring the ways in which the color line is still visible in the labor market, the housing market, education, family structure, and many other aspects of life at the turn of a new century."--Jacket
