September 21, 2005. The Souls of Black Folk Multimedia Study Environment (MSE) will be integrated into Professor Manning Marable's Intro to African American Studies undergraduate lecture course this fall. The MSE is based on W.E.B. Du Bois' 1903 collection of essays and contains references to both historical events and biographical experiences with archival film footage and music.

The Intro to African American Studies course is a survey that covers African American culture from its historical foundations and background to the modern black experience, from the struggle against slavery to the Harlem Renaissance. Students will be assigned to read specific sections of the Souls of Black Folk and to view historical film clips as well as video commentary from Professors Manning Marable, Casey Blake, Robert O'Meally, and Alan Brinkley throughout the semester.
