The Souls of White Folk: African American Writers Theorize Whiteness by Veronica T. Watson
English | August 23th, 2013 | ISBN: 161703889X | 183 Pages | True PDF | 1.04 MB

The Souls of White Folk: African American Writers Theorize Whiteness is the first study to consider the substantial body of African American writing that critiques whiteness as social construction and racial identity.

Watson instead identifies this body of literature as an African American intellectual and literary tradition that she names “the literature of white estrangement.”
