A Year-Long Journey into the Soul of Dr. Du Bois
Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans, Chair of the CAU Department of History
"Wisdom is the Best of All Treasures: Welcome to the Sojourn"

In 2012, Clark Atlanta University will host a year-long reading seminar on the major works of W.E.B. Du Bois. Dr. Evans introduces the collective endeavor of the series and acknowledges the 50 participants who will take part. She also sets the context for her creation of the 2013 conference that she will co-chair with President Brown.

The CAU President, Provost, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, and Chair of the Department of History will engage in a sustained consideration of Du Boisian texts in preparation for the 2013 On the Wings of Atlanta Commemorative Conference. We encourage scholars of all levels to join the CAU campus, Atlanta University Center, and Atlanta-metro institutions in a nation-wide Sankofa sojourn into the writing of the most profound, relevant and complex scholar of our generation.
