W.E.B. DuBois - Lessons for His Future, Our Present
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
W.E.B. Du Bois was a civil rights leader, educator, author and poet. He was the first Black student to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard, writing his 1895 dissertation on the American slave trade.
Du Bois founded the protest group known as the Niagara Movement, co-founded the NAACP and edited "The Crisis," an influential magazine that published young Black writers and advocated for civil rights.
In this talk, historian and scholar Eric Porter will explore Du Bois’ work and his influence on today’s Black Lives Matter movement.Zoom link: https://fhda-edu.zoom.us/j/95333943142
