Learned more about W.E. Dubois from tour than I did in US history books. Tour guide was knowledgeable and provided a great overview. Being in Dubois library and seeing the actual books that he lift page markers in was fascinating

This small museum is in Dubois’ former home. It houses photos, documents and furnishings from the life of this African-American internationalist. The real value is in the guide’s commentary, which was fascinating.

This center or house is packed with so much real history. It felt like I was reading a book. Going through the rooms was like turning the pages of the book. My guide definitely knew her history. The Center is well-kept and inspiring.

The history of WEB DuBois is an important one. The museum is quite small though so it is not a must-see, but if you are interested in the subject then you may want to stop by.
