Gt. Barrington, MA–38th Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures: Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of W. E. B. Du Bois @ Saint James Place
Oct 27 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

W. E. B. Du Bois was born in Great Barrington on February 23, 1868. He would become a figure of international importance—the first black man to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard University, a tireless advocate for the rights of marginalized people everywhere, a founder of the Niagara Movement and the NAACP, and the author of countless influential works of scholarship.

Du Bois is a particular hero to the Schumacher Center because he understood that racial justice was inseparable from economic justice and that economic inequality was the engine and not simply the consequence of a deeper social inequality.

We believe that speakers Leah Penniman and Ed Whitfield are doing economic justice work that builds on the legacy of W. E. B. Du Bois— his commitment to black economic development, cooperative structures, and fair access to land.

Penniman, co-founder of Soul Fire Farm, is working to end racism in the food system and establish a just land tenure system. The title of Penniman’s talk is “Farming While Black: A Legacy of Innovation and Resistance.”

Whitfield, co-founder and co-managing director of the Fund for Democratic Communities, has written and spoken extensively on non-extractive finance, reparations, and building investment structures that support community self-determination. The title of his talk is to be announced.
