W.E.B. Du Bois was one of the most influential African American scholars, writers, and thinkers on race in the late 19th and early 20th century; his contributions remain critical to discussions on civil rights today. Among a lifetime of achievements, Du Bois was the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard in 1895, the author of the seminal book The Souls of Black Folk, and one of the original founders of the NAACP.
Join us for the Northwest African American Museum’s next Descendants Series program, a virtual afternoon with Dr. Arthur McFarlane, II, the great grandson of W.E.B. Du Bois, as he shares the legacy of his lineage. McFarlane will be joined in conversation with Kiantha Duncan, President of the NAACP Spokane.
Dr. Arthur McFarlane, II holds a Ph.D. in social psychology and is currently a Population Health Analyst at Children’s Hospital of Colorado, where he works to understand how data can be used to reveal injustices in public health.
Kiantha Duncan is the president of NAACP, Spokane Branch, and a seasoned leader, highly sought-after speaker and facilitator, author, community builder, and dedicated advocate for marginalized voices. Kiantha inspires and challenges audiences to repurpose negative experiences for good, and is passionate about helping others actualize their potential, purpose, and connectedness through the art of conversations.
