Meeting W. E. B. Du Bois in the Archives

Come hold history in your hands, and encounter W. E. B. Du Bois through his voluminous archive housed in UMass Amherst Libraries' Special Collections. Novices and Du Bois scholars alike enjoy learning about Du Bois though the primary sources created and saved by Du Bois himself during his active 95-year lifetime. This workshop will highlight items revealing Du Bois across his life as an internationally significant scholar, writer, and activist. Participants will engage with special collections materials, do primary source analysis, and learn how to access and use (physically and digitally) the Du Bois Papers.
