'William Edward Burghardt Du Bois (23 February 1868, Great Barrington – 27 August 1963, Accra), was a prominent Afro-American human rights activist and academic in the first half of the 20th century. He is referred to as the ‘father of pan-africanism’ and was active as a sociologist, historian, author, editor, poet and teacher. He was naturalised as a Ghana citizen as a 95 year old after the American government denied him a new passport. He was the first Afro-American to receive a PhD at Harvard on a dissertation on the transatlantic slave trade’.
