Below are flyers and other resources that have been developed by facilitators and organizers for the reading and symposiums in the Year of W.E.B. Du Bois.
Chronology of the works of W.E.B. Du Bois and world events:
Review of World and Africa from 1947 in the New York Times.
Guidelines for reading developed by Luna Gayeski and Yusuf Khalfani for the Philadelphia Reads W.E.B. Du Bois group at the Wooden Shoe:
We will begin at 3:00, on the second & fourth Sundays of each month until the end of June. We will start meeting again in September until the end of November.
We welcome all questions, challenges, feelings and ideas. Part of the role of the facilitators is to bring us back to the text after engaging with an idea. The facilitators will make themselves available to help individuals process outside of the group, to the best of their ability.
We will respect confidentiality if it is requested.
Participation and sharing is entirely voluntary.
In the interest of equal accessibility to those who don't have the time or the ability to read, outside reading will not be an integral part of the group.
The environment will be one of mutual respect. We will strive to meet each other with generosity and kindness, recognizing we are all at different points in our own unique process.
We seek to learn from each other and create knowledge collectively. No one knows everything, and everyone knows something. We will engage with ideas as equals.
