“an American, a Negro… two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.”

Art of Quotation

“One ever feels his twoness – an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings;

two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.”

W. E. B. Du Bois, American, sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, professor, author, writer and editor.
