W.E.B DuBois

“The cost of liberty is less than the price of repression.”- W.E.B Dubois

William Edward Burghardt, W.E.B, DuBois
(February 23, 1868- August 27, 1963)
Du Bois was an author, editor, historian, sociologist and civil right activist, and besides becoming a professor of history, sociology and economics, at Atlanta University, he was also on of the co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.

W.E.B Du Bois’s passionate and intelligent ideals, along with his strong voice, has not only placed him in history as a ‘man beyond his time’, but also to be known as the ‘Father of Social Science’, researching the cause of racial segregation and determined to find a “cure”.

“I learned… Du Bois had helped found the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in 1909… Du Bois the first black student at Harvard ever to attain a Ph. D., envisioned a black elite class reaching the highest levels of politics, Wall Street, and academia with sheer brainpower: a “talented tenth,” he called it.”- Harry Belafonte
