Reggie Harris & Scott Ainslie, Great Barrington MA
December 19 @ 1:00 pm - 10:00 pm
W.E.B. DuBois’ centennial events are being held all around his home town of Great Barrington, MA. Reggie and I are proud to be included in these celebrations.
We’ll be presenting at an Arts & Ideas Forum with students in the afternoon, followed by a performance of our concert program, “Long Time Comin’.”
A colleague and sometimes rival of the older Booker T. Washington, DuBois felt that economic self-sufficiency was a necessary part of black advancement, but unlike Washington, saw no reason for any group of American citizens to avoid militating for immediate political and social equality.
