Due to popular demand, the Environmental Psychology department at CUNY Graduate Center has started a W.E.B. Du Bois Reading Group.

William Edward Burghardt “W.E.B.” Du Bois was an African American sociologist, historian, and activist. He was also the first African American to earn a doctorate. His work includes Souls of Black Folk, Black Reconstruction in America, The Crisis, The Philadelphia Negro, The Star of Ethiopia, and many more. This reading group is aimed to engage in the writings of Du Bois through reading and discussion. The first meeting was held on February 20th.

The next meeting will be held at 4-5:30 on March 13th in Room 6203.20 at the Graduate Center.

We will be discussing the first and third chapters of Souls of Black Folk and listen to a few of the African spirituals that Du Bois mentions.

The current schedule is as follows:

March 27th

April 10th

May 1st

May 15th

All meetings are held at 4-5:30 in Room 6203.20 at the Graduate Center.
