W.E.B. DU BOIS, AFRICAN AMERICANS & WORLD WAR I
W.E.B. Du Bois (1868-1963) was the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard and cofounded the NAACP. Shortly after World War I, the Knights of Columbus published “The Gift of Black Folk,” a book authored by Du Bois. Dr. Chad Williams, of Brandeis University, will examine the “Great War” through the eyes of Du Bois, together with the civil rights leader’s aspirations for America.
