This landmark book is a founding work in the literature of black protest. W. E. B.

@nytimes @alexanderchee @heyitsfranklin2 @lachristensen @nytimesbooks For me it would be books like "Invisible Man" by Ralph Ellison, "Playing in the Dark" by Toni Morrison, "The Souls of Black Folk" by W.E.B. Dubois, among others. Good books. Even Alvin Toffler's 1980 classic "Third Wave", which has great points about changes in the economy.      source

Goodreads Rating
The computer and the internet are among the most important innovations of our era, but few people know who created them. They were not conjured up in a garret or garage by solo inventors suitable to be singled out on magazine covers or put into a pantheon with Edison, Bell, and Morse. Instead, most of the innovations of the digital age were done co...
