The Revolutionary Presence of W. E. B. Du Bois at UMass Amherst: A Special Lecture for UMass Students by Philip Luke Sinitiere

The Revolutionary Presence of W. E. B. Du Bois at UMass Amherst: A Special Lecture for UMass Students by Philip Luke Sinitiere In-Person

Have you ever wondered why, when, and how the archives of W. E. B. Du Bois – one of the most significant figures in American intellectual history, the tireless campaigner for racial justice and an enduring icon of applied activist scholarship – ended up here, at UMass Amherst? 

Join us on Wednesday, October 11 for a special lecture from the W. E. B. Du Bois Center that will tell the fascinating story of how the Du Bois papers made their circuitous way to UMass Amherst via New York City, Accra, and Cairo and learn about the heroic part played by UMass faculty, staff, students and supporters in making sure the papers were made available to the public – both in physical and digital form. 

The lecture is free and will be delivered by Dr. Phillip Luke Sinitiere, scholar in residence at the Du Bois Center, and an expert on the vivid life and enduring legacy of W. E. B. Du Bois (1868 – 1963). 

Attendance is free but registration is required. Register here.
