African Heritage Month: WEB Dubois, Then and Now

February 23
12:00 PM — 2:00 PM
Room N-451 at 199 Chambers St.

W.E.B. Dubois has long been recognized as an important figure in African-American history, both as a scholar and an activist. His work is now getting new attention for its profound impact on sociology itself. Join three BMCC sociologists for a discussion of Dubois’ life and ideas, the changing attitudes towards his work, and his continued relevance today.

Speakers

C. Ray Borck, Ph.D.
David Caicedo, Ph.D.
Jamie Warren, Ph.D.

Moderator: Sheldon Applewhite, Ph.D.

Attenders are encouraged to read from the new book, “The Scholar Denied: W. E. B. DuBois and the Birth of Modern Sociology,” by Aldon Morris, available digitally through the BMCC library.

About W.E.B. Dubois
William Edward Burghardt "W. E. B." Du Bois (February 23, 1868 – August 27, 1963) was an American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, and editor. After completing graduate work at the University of Berlin and Harvard, where he was the first African American to earn a doctorate, he became a professor of history, sociology and economics at Atlanta University. Du Bois was one of the co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.
