W. E. B. Du Bois

a.k.a. William Edward Burghardt Du Bois

Author Code: AWEB

Born: Feb. 23, 1868 - Great Barrington, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Aug. 27, 1963 - Accra, Ghana

Educated at Fisk University, Harvard College and the University of Berlin, Du Bois travelled around Europe before returning to America to continue his studies. He became the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1896. Du Bois was especially interested in criminology and its effects within the black community. In 1897, he published A Program of Social Reform and The Study of the Negro Problems, both of which were well-received in public and academic circles. He was one of the most prominent leaders of the African Americans at the beginning of the 20th century and, in 1905, was one of the founders of the Niagara Movement and, more importantly, helped to found the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) in 1909. Until 1910, Du Bois held various teaching positions, but that year he left teaching to devote his time to writing and civil rights activities. He was the editor-in-chief of the NAACP's periodical, The Crisis, for 25 years and also contributed columns to many major newspapers. In 1936, he travelled to Japan and China with other academics. During the 1940's he was accused of being a communist and investigated by the FBI. Ironically, he did join the American Communist Party in 1961, at the age of 93. That year he was invited by President Nkrumah of Ghana to direct a government production of the Encyclopedia Africana. He was refused a new US passport in 1963 and became a citizen of Ghana. His other works include The Suppression of the African Slave Trade to the USA, 1638-1870 (1896), The Philadelphia Negro (1899), The Negro in Business (1899), The Souls of Black Folk (1903), John Brown (1909), Darkwater (1920), Dark Princess (1928), Africa, Its Place in Modern History (1930), Black Folk, Thena and Now (1939), Peace is Dangerous (1951), The Ordeal of Mansart (1957) and Worlds of Color (1961).
