Soul Searching

For the centennial anniversary of W.E.B. DuBois’ classic study The Souls of Black Folk (1903), the Office of Institutional Diversity and Multicultural Affairs and the History Department have organized a reading and discussion group, led by James Johnson, visiting assistant professor of history.

“This historic literary work helped alter the course of African-American—and therefore, our nation’s—history,” says Sharon Brown, director of diversity and multicultural affairs.

Joining other colleges—such as Harvard University, the University of Wisconsin, and Morgan State University, a historically black institution in Baltimore—in celebrating and considering this book, Moravian’s group will meet at 4:00 p.m. Wednesdays, October 1, 15, and 29, in the lounge on the lower level of Monocacy Hall.

To reserve a copy of the book or for any other information, call Gloria Guth, Ext. 7847.
