Editors’ Note: W. E. B. Dubois (1868-1963) was one of the country’s greatest revolutionary scholars and intellectuals of the 20th century.The 150th anniversary of W.E.B. Du Bois’ birth will be celebrated in 2018. Within these celebrations will be a special project called ‘Philadelphia Reads Dubois’.

W.E. B. Dubois ceaselessly strove to act on his beliefs and fight for peace and socialism. The organizers of Philadelphia Reads Dubois believe his writings are important both to understand the world today and to move forward to a new kind of society. At several sites around the city of Philadelphia, there will be reading groups which will read a certain work of Du Bois. The suggested time for the groups to meet is twice a month, 3-5 pm on Sundays.
