W. E. B. Du Bois and the fight for American democracy
With democracy in peril, Du Bois reminds us of the long fight to protect it.
Kevin M. Levin
"From the perspective of black folk, as Du Bois brilliantly and consistently demonstrated, democracy has always been in a state of crisis. Trump is both the mirror and our historical reckoning."
“In 1961, as an act of defiance, Du Bois joined the Communist Party and left the United States for Ghana at the invitation of President Kwame Nkrumah. Africa, not America, would be his final resting place.”
