"You and I can never be satisfied with sitting down before a great human problem and saying nothing can be done. We must do something. That is the reason we are on Earth."
- W. E. B. Du Bois, 1909
Please join us via Zoom Webinar on Thursday, March 25th, from 6pm-7:30pm, as we welcome Dr. Whitney Battle-Baptiste, Professor of Anthropology, and Director of the W.E.B. DuBois Center at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. In her talk, "W.E.B. DuBois in Our Time: From Reconstruction to Black Lives Matter," which will be followed by a Q and A, Dr. Battle-Baptiste will connect what we describe today as anti-racist scholarship with the incredible and radical legacy of W. E. B. Du Bois.

This lecture is sponsored by the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education, the Department of History, the Race and Ethnic Studies Program, and the Department of Geography and Anthropology at the University of Southern Maine.
