In Admiration of W.E.B. Du Bois
Come hear a lecture by Mark Fang, Executive Director of the City of Yonkers Commission on Human Rights. In honor of Black History Month, Fang examines The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. Du Bois’ foundational work of sociology, which lays out his thoughts on race, the nature of racism, and the culture, spirituality, and soul of a people.
Du Bois famously stated, “The problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color-line,” and his words ring as true in the twenty-first century. The program concludes with a discussion on ways to bring about social change in our own time and place.
