W.E.B. Du Bois: From Country Kid to Civil Rights Leader

The backstory of one of the founders of the NAACP

Outside the town of Great Barrington, Mass., on Route 23, is a 5.15-acre plot. The land’s filled with trees, and it hosts a small gravel parking lot, a trail, and a few signs. The markers explain that William Edward Burghardt Du Bois grew up here.
