About the Event

June 27 W. E. B. (William Edward Burghardt) Du Bois (1868–1963), “Jesus Christ in Texas”

Du Bois was a sociologist, socialist, historian, civil rights activist,  editor, and co-founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. His writings revolutionized the way that American society saw African Americans. In this chapter from his book Darkwater, composed shortly after the lynching of Jesse Washington in 1916, Du Bois tells a Dostoevsky-like story of Jesus visiting Waco.
