"The W.E.B. Du Bois Center at the University of Massachusetts Amherst was established in 2009 to engage the nation and the world in discussion and scholarship about the global issues involving race, labor and social justice. The Center presents an interdisciplinary approach to the intersections among African American culture and history, social justice and labor relations which opens this research to new insights and evaluation in light of the issues confronting people throughout the world today.
By making its resources readily available and accessible to the public, the Center holds fast to the scholarly tradition and spirit of its namesake, W. E. B. Du Bois, a Massachusetts native son, who was pivotal to the social and political debates on race, class and culture of the 20th century."
"Includes over 100,000 items of correspondence (more than three quarters of the papers), speeches, articles, newspaper columns, nonfiction books, research materials, book reviews, pamphlets and leaflets, petitions, novels, essays, forewords, student papers, manuscripts of pageants, plays, short stories and fables, poetry, photographs, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, videotapes, audiotapes, and miscellaneous materials."
"n the years immediately following World War I, tens of thousands of southern blacks and returning black soldiers flocked to the nation’s Northern cities looking for good jobs and a measure of respect and security. Many white Americans, fearful of competition for scarce jobs and housing, responded by attacking black citizens in a spate of urban race riots. In urban African-American enclaves, the 1920s were marked by a flowering of cultural expressions and a proliferation of black self-help organizations that accompanied the era of the “New Negro.” Debates raged over the best political and organizational path for black Americans, and the Crisis, the national magazine of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), offered one of the earliest and most powerful endorsements of the “New Negro.” In an editorial immediately following the Chicago race riot of 1919, Crisis editor W. E. B. Du Bois argued in favor of acts of self-defense and armed resistance, despite the editorial’s conciliatory title, "Let Us Reason Together." "
