You've probably heard the name W. E. B. Du Bois. You've probably been in the Library named for him and have perhaps noticed his image and quotes in the lobby. But how much do you know about him? This workshop will provide a short introduction to the life of W. E. B. Du Bois and his significance as a scholar, public intellectual, and activist. The workshop will also describe the work of the W. E. B. Du Bois Center at UMass as well as the materials available on Du Bois, his life and times, through the University Archive. Refreshments will be served.
