This is W.E.B. Du Bois, who, like me, was "born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight." What a wonder to "see" him seeing--to see the quizzical quality in those eyes as they move about. A wonder...and maybe a terror, too. https://t.co/yueJpd717v

Ibram X. Kendi would ask James Baldwin, Zora Neale Hurston and W.E.B. Du Bois to dinner: "At some point, I suspect Hurston would get tired of Du Bois and grab Baldwin and hit the music." https://t.co/c48rzr8lIJ

"Our rulers are afraid of an idea; tempted by a vision of power which this idea fights. The power they crave long misled and slaughtered the peoples of Europe and Asia, and now insidiously creeps into our own fever-mad heads; and that is imperialism." W. E. B. Du Bois, 1951 https://t.co/YwabPJ0VzN

Just finished reading Christopher McAuley's The Spirit vs. The Souls: Max Weber, W.E.B. Du Bois and the Politics of Scholarship. I got the book when it came out but only now got to read it. It is really very good! I highly recommend it.

W.E.B. Du Bois on the value of the "truth-seeking ideal" of scholarship in a democracy and amidst the "intense feeling that clouds the discussion of a burning social question." (Dusk of Dawn, 1940). https://t.co/uW8vyAupYK

Amazing! Establishes W.E.B. Du Bois as a data storytelling pioneer, who balanced best practices with "data art" to grab attention. Loved @Jasonforrestftw detective work (rediscovering a lost viz!) & @ajstarks innovation in recreating Du Bois's hand-drawn work w modern tools. https://t.co/YbI5NcA59H

Born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, W.E.B. Du Bois was integral in the formation of the @NAACP & served as editor of the association’s magazine @thecrisismag. Du Bois’ ideas have served as inspiration for generations of activists in the fight for equality. #BlackHistoryMonth https://t.co/cT5WXpQmrs

Fantastic piece by @AnnaHolmes on "The Brownies’ Book", a magazine launched in W. E. B. Du Bois for Black children: https://t.co/3cd4qUokEa It only lasted two years, but it created cultural echoes that lasted for decades
