Remembering W.E.B. Du Bois

Oftentimes touted as the father of the Pan-African movement and originator of the concept of the talented tenth, 1st African American to obtain a PhD from Harvard and co-founder of the NAACP, W.E.B Du Bois' contributions to the diaspora must never be forgotten. If you have never read his works, please get a copy of "The Souls of Black Folk" and get educated. While I don't agree with everything he espoused, I respect and am grateful for his profound intellectual contributions as well as his activism both in the US and around the world. Happy Birthday Dr Du Bois.
