We will examine the full range of political ideologies and conditions as well as the social and intellectual ideas over time that reinforced Du Bois’s commitment to education as central and fundamental to the overall well-being and development of African American individuals and communities (i.e., socially, culturally, politically, and economically. The implications of his work and ideas for contemporary education issues will be examined as well. The class is open to juniors and above.
