“Herein lies the tragedy of the age: not that men are poor—all men know something of poverty; not that men are wicked—who is good? Not that men are ignorant—what is truth? Nay, but that men know so little of men.”
~ W.E.B. Du Bois
William Edward Burghart Du Bois (1868-1963) was an African-American scholar, author, socialist and political activist. He was the very first person of colour to earn a doctorate degree in the United States. Du Bois was a founding father of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) in 1909. He opposed racism and bigotry in all of its ugly forms and believed that education was the key to achieving the goals of full rights and liberties under the law.
