Sociologist and historian William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was born in Great Barrington, MA on Feb. 23, 1868. Credited as “the most important Black protest leader in the United States during the first half of the 20th century” for his extensive sociological studies into the African-American experience in America, and his pioneering of Pan-Africanism. Du Bois was also a founding member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and would publish 16 research monographs between 1897 and 1914. #blackhistorymonth#blackexcellence

Our #WCW goes to these three ladies who launched a nationwide voter registration campaign at "Black Panther" screenings.
In October of 2017, Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd, and Rukia Lumumba started the Electoral Justice Project (EJP), a project that is a part of the larger Movement for Black Lives, which seeks to fight for and advance the rights of Black U.S. citizens. With the highly anticipated premiere of Black Panther taking place across the country, EJP launched a new mission called #WakandaTheVote.
The mission seeks to leverage the excitement, pride, and unity that this film has awakened in the Black community into mobilized political engagement to encourage African Americans to get involved and vote. The EJP prides itself on "meeting the community where they are" in order to successfully garner listening ears and interest.
In an exclusive interview with @Blavity, Byrd and Reed said: "We know that for some it's a superhero world, but we know that the world we deserve is still waiting to be built — and we want to build it! This upcoming spring and November 2018 midterm elections are an important step in building that new world, and we want to take every opportunity to engage our communities in the conversation of electoral justice."
