Call in to speak with the host
Join Host Adriane Michelle and Special Guest Arthur McFarlane, the great grandson of W.E.B. Dubois, as they talk about his legacy and the upcoming seminars taking place at Clark Atlanta University for the next 12 months.
W.E.B. Du Bois is known for many achievements. He was the first African-American to graduate from Harvard, and he was cofounder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The NAACP’s official biography presents Du Bois as a leader, Pan-Africanist, sociologist, educator, historian, writer, editor, poet, and scholar. “Du Bois’s life and work were an inseparable mixture of scholarship, protest activity, and polemics,” the biography states. “All of his efforts were geared toward gaining equal treatment for black people in a world dominated by whites and toward marshaling and presenting evidence to refute the myths of racial inferiority.”
McFarlane was educated at Stuyvesant High School in New York City, at the State University of New York at Brockport, and at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He has served as co-chair for the CDPHE Employee Diversity Advisory Committee and as treasurer for the Colorado Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Coalition. He has been co-chair of the Board of Directors for the Rape Assistance and Awareness Program and Chair of the Board of the Colorado Coalition against Sexual Assault. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.
It's good to talk.
