Champion of civil rights and leader for world peace and freedom on the national and world stages, W.E.B. Du Bois began his life’s work in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Du Bois was a great American humanist and visionary, one of the most influential and provocative voices in the 20th century. As a founder and leader of the NAACP and Pan African Congress, Du Bois dedicated his life to making a better future for all people. To restore Dr. Du Bois to the American public memory, we at the W.E.B. Du Bois National Historic Site — with your help — want to build an international destination to both engage the public interest and commemorate his most remarkable life and legacy.
