About the Author
William Edward Burghardt (W. E. B.) Du Bois (1868–1963) was born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. A scholar, activist, and author, Du Bois was not only the first African American to earn a PhD from Harvard University but was also the most celebrated advocate of African American rights in the early twentieth century. He cofounded the NAACP in 1909 and founded the organization’s magazine, The Crisis, which is now the oldest Black publication in the world.
In addition to his work as a professor of history, sociology, and economics at Atlanta University, Du Bois worked his entire life to promote civil rights, Pan-Africanism, women’s rights, and nuclear disarmament. A prolific writer, Du Bois penned many works, including Black Reconstruction in America, The Philadelphia Negro, and the seminal sociological work The Souls of Black Folk.
Du Bois died in Accra, Ghana, at the age of ninety-five―just a day before Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech at the March on Washington.
