February 23 -- The Soul of Black Folks
You know, when I undertook this as a project, I had no idea how many people/events we actually WERE made to hear/read about in school actually WERE born DURING Black History Month.
Today is W.E.B. Du Bois' birthday.
W.E.B. standing for William Edward Burghardt.
Look, we know about him, and if we don't, Google is a good friend of ours...
- Pan Africanist
- First Black Doctorate Graduate of Harvard
- Headed the NAACP when they
matteredwere more necessary
- Possessor of a bad-fucking-ass mustache
and a great many more important things...
I will have a thought of unearthing my copy of the book that titles this post as a celebration of the day, but don't hold me to that.
