Abstract

Emerson’s “Address on the Emancipation of the Negroes in the British West Indies” and Du Bois’s “The Conservation of Races” amplify and limn the emotional discourse and affective-cognitive narratives of experience that are such crucial yet under-valued dimensions of their authors’ writings on reform and race, and reading them together sets up a uniquely revealing context against which to gauge the potency and limits of the most widely known idea they have in common: double consciousness.
