In February 2013, Clark Atlanta University hosted an international conference, "W. E. B. Du Bois and the Wings of Atlanta," which celebrated the birthday of Dr. Du Bois and commemorated the 50th Anniversary of his passing. The gathering was held on the campus where Du Bois spent 23 years as faculty. After four days of dialogue featuring 150 speakers on 30 panels, Amiri Baraka gave the keynote address. Baraka read from his play in production at the time, “Most Dangerous Man in America,” about the trial of Du Bois, prosecuted (persecuted) for his peace activism. Mr. Baraka joined the Ancestors on January 9, 2014. This 15-minute clip is an excerpt from a documentary in production by CAU professors, Drs. Shawn Bulloch and Stephanie Evans.
