Du Bois Museum - Accra

The Dubois museum in Accra was the last residence of Dr Dubois until 27th August 1963. Located in the Cantonments,Accra  the residence of the current President and my hotel, the museum was a few minutes walk away.

 At the center, Dr Dubois complied the Encylopedia Africa in conjunction with Pan Africanist Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana. Dubois  is regarded as one of two prominent Black intellectuals of the century alongside Dr Cornell West.  I would love to elaborate further ,but there is simply not enough space on here.( If you are interested have a look at Wikipedia, the source of all knowledge. Yes I am being sarcastic)

The Souls of Black Folk ‘first edition’ is in Dr Dubois’ personal library, including hundreds of books from the civil rights movements, NAACP manuals, philosophy and of course the American constitution!
