Each week a different Du Bois scholar will explore aspects of the Great Barrington-born activist's life and times, including his relationship with his hometown, the NAACP, the Harlem Renaissance, civil rights and Pan African movements, and the American Communist party, as well as examining works such as The Souls of Black Folk and Black Reconstruction.
The six lectures in this series, co-sponsored by the Town of Great Barrington, are curated and moderated by Randy F. Weinstein (Du Bois Center) and Gwendolyn VanSant (Multicultural BRIDGE).
