W.E.B. Du Bois at Paris Exposition, 1900

Pioneering sociologist, historian, novelist, playwright, and cultural critic, W. E. B. Du Bois committed his life to a relentless opposition to racial and social injustice. Without ever seeking a mass following, he was a peerless organizer who helped to found both the Niagara Movement and the NAACP, and who fostered several Pan African Congresses. For years, he was editor of The Crisis and other progressive journals, and was an international spokesperson for peace and the rights of oppressed minorities.

A son of Massachusetts, Du Bois articulated the strivings of African Americans and demonstrated the significance of Black culture before a world audience.

The following list includes links to resources in the Department of Special Collections and University Archives at UMass Amherst relating to W.E.B. Du Bois, his life, and legacy.
