Marcus Campbell’s Best Reads of 2016
December 15, 2016
My name is Marcus Campbell. I am the Assistant Superintendent and Principal at Evanston Township High School. I have been at ETHS for 15 years and started my career there teaching English. I love to read and enjoy the food scene.
1) The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Dubois (1903)
I always read something each year from the list of canonical black texts. I find these readings informative in that many of these texts written long ago are still applicable today.
