Today in #BlackHistory Dr.William Edward Burghardt DuBois, educator and civil rights advocate, was born in Great Barrington, Mass.

He to attended Fisk University in 1885 for his undergrad and became the first African American to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1895. Du Bois wrote extensively and was the best known spokesperson for African-American rights during the first half of the 20th century. In 1903, Du Bois published his seminal work, The Souls of Black Folk, a collection of 14 essays. In the years following, he adamantly opposed the idea of biological white superiority and vocally supported women's rights. He co-founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in 1909. Du Bois died in Ghana in 1963.
