W.E.B. Du Bois

On the Passing of the First-Born

W.E.B. Du Bois was a university professor with a Harvard PhD living in Atlanta, the most middle class black city in America when his two-year old son Burghardt contracted diphtheria and died without medical attention. In 1899, in Atlanta there were no appropriate medical facilities for blacks, and the black doctors feared to treat a boy so white. For the rest of his life, Du Bois waged a relentless battle against Ignorance.
