W.E.B.DuBois was born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts on  February 23, 1868. He was a sociologist, historian, and civil rights activist.  W.E.B.DuBois was also known as the co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909. W.E.B.DuBois believed education can lead to social equality, political action was necessary to promote change, and legal challenges to segregation were effective.  It is over 100 years later and we are still making progress with Dubois’ ideas in America.

 

I think W.E.B. DuBois was one of the most important African-Americans because he motivated African-Americans to fight for their civil rights. In addition, The  National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) that he created is still existing today, and it is also the oldest and largest civil rights organization that continues to fight for social justice for all Americans.

What would W.E.B. DuBois say about the recent headlines and protests today that object to prejudice and overuse of force by white police officers towards black men and other ethnic minorities?
