“Believe in life! Always human beings will live and progress to greater, broader, and fuller life.”

W.E.B. DuBois


One of the shining lights for African Americans is William Edward Burghardt DuBois.  He was passionate about being Black and discovering ways to highlight our significant contribution to the United States and the world.  He was not a fan of racism in the United States and wrote widely against it.  He was educated, being the first African Americans to receive a Ph.D. degree from Harvard University.  At the turn of the 20th Century, DuBois was described as the smartest and most intellectual Black man.

 Working with others, DuBois was instrumental as a founder of the NAACP and the Pan- Africanism Movement.  His book, The Souls of Black Folk, published in 1903.  He was a prolific reader and his thirst for knowledge was demonstrated in many published works and research projects.

 He challenged Booker T. Washington’s notion that Blacks should focus on vocational education and not higher education and political aspirations.  DuBois challenged Washington’s assertions in a very public debate.

 In 1961, DuBois joined the Communist Party and moved to Accra, Ghana, West Africa.  He died August 27, 1963 (one day before the March on Washington) and is entombed in his home in Accra that has become an institution for learning.  It is toured by thousands of visitors each year.
