My first published writings were news notes in The New York Age. Then I had an article in The Atlantic Monthly and in 1896 my doctor's thesis on the slave trade was published as my first book. The Souls of Black Folk appeared in 1903 and one or two other books thereafter. I taught at Wilberforce, Pennsylvania and Atlanta and became editor of The Crisis in 1910.
