Restless is celebrating the life of this pioneering civil-rights activist and sociologist by offering a special 25% discount on the Restless Classics edition of his magnum opus, The Souls of Black Folk, which Atlantic staff writer and introducer Vann R. Newkirk II calls "perhaps the most influential work about race in America." Included in the edition are beautiful original illustrations by printmaker Steve Prince, who in his images tells "the potent story of African-Americans rising from the depths of slavery and making a way out of no way." Enter "DUBOISDAY" at checkout when you buy the book from Restless to get 25% off.
