Honoring W.E.B. Du Bois

On February 17, 2012, the Board of Trustees at the University of Pennsylvania appointed Dr. William Edward Burghardt Du Bois Honorary Emeritus Professor of Sociology and Africana Studies. The day included three intellectual panels, an art installation, musical tribute, and a poetic tribute. This short video captures the day's activities. Professor Tukufu Zuberi led the effort to recognize W.E.B. Du Bois with the professorship and facilitated this daylong conference at Penn to mark the occasion.
