Remembering W.E.B Du Bois

INSPIRATION: W.E.B Du Bois

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the late, great W.E.B. Du Bois, a journalist, author, educator, and civil rights advocate!

Du Bois was considered one of the most important African-American activists during the first half of the 20th century, and co-founded the NAACP along with supporting the Pan-Africanism movement.

See below our top 5 quotes from the scholar and political activist:

1.ON EDUCATION

"Education is that whole system of human training within and without the school house walls, which molds and develops men."

2.ON IDEALS

"A true and worthy ideal frees and uplifts a people; a false ideal imprisons and lowers."

3.ON LEARNING

“Children learn more from what you are than what you teach.”

4.ON FREEDOM

“The cost of liberty is less than the price of repression.”

5.ON BROTHERHOOD

“I believe that all men, black, brown, and white, are brothers.”
