black history month: w.e.b dubois
W.E.B. DuBois was an American educator, editor, and writer, and he was the co-founder of the NAACP. In addition, DuBois was the NAACP Director of Publicity and Research, a member of its board of directors, and founded The Crisis, its monthly magazine. In The Crisis, Du Bois directed a constant stream of agitation – often bitter and sarcastic – at white Americans while serving as a source of information and pride to African Americans. The magazine always published young African American writers. Amongst his many other accomplishments, W.E.B. DuBois was also the first African American to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1909.
