Clark Atlanta University Kicks Off a Yearlong Study of W.E.B. Du Bois

This coming week Clark Atlanta University is kicking off a yearlong study of the works of W.E.B. Du Bois. Each month throughout the next year the university will host an event relating to Du Bois. The first event will be a panel discussion on Du Bois’ The Souls of Black Folk and The Gift of Black Folk. The project will culminate with the 2013 “On the Wings of Atlanta” Commemorative Conference, celebrating Du Bois’ legacy and the 50th anniversary of his death.

Carlton E. Brown, president of Clark Atlanta University said, “As a faculty member at Atlanta University for 23 years, Dr. Du Bois left such an embossed footprint on our grounds in support of Black higher education and social commentary. We are pleased to host such an in-depth examination of his works, which are making a mark on today’s generation and generations to come.”
