While it’s been more than half a century since W. E. B. Du Bois was actively writing about the Black experience in America, many of today’s most prominent scholars and thinkers on race and democracy in this country still cite his ideas about double consciousness, the color line, and how Black Americans meet resistance in a white-dominated society. This week, Visiting Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature Michael Weinman will lead a panel on the topic, with professors and writers who come to Du Bois from different backgrounds and approaches. We chatted with Weinman about Du Bois’ significance, and got a preview of the conversation. Attend the panel this Wednesday, November 2nd, at 7pm in IU Bloomington’s Cook Center in Maxwell Hall.
