How can Du Bois’ concept of double-consciousness continue to illuminate American writing?

FULL RESEARCH ESSAY QUESTION: “The Negro is a sort of seventh son, born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight in this American world – a world which yields him no true self-consciousness, but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world. It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world which looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels this twoness, - an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two un-reconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder. The history of the American Negro is the history of this strife, - this longing to attain self-conscious manhood, to merge his double self into a better and truer self.” W.E.B. Du Bois: The Souls of Black Folk (1903) How can Du Bois’ concept of double-consciousness continue to illuminate American writing? You should use at least two novels to respond.
