W.E.B. DuBois Data Portraits -- ArtSpace New Haven
WPKN Community Radio
Valerie Richardson -- Radio SomethingAn interview with Lisa Dent, the Executive Director of New Haven's Artspace, about the exhibition "W.E.B. DuBois, Georgia, and His Data Portraits."In 1900, sociologist and civil rights activist W.E.B. Du Bois created a series of data visualizations for the “Exhibit of American Negroes” at that year’s Paris Exhibition. The graphs and charts center on the socioeconomic conditions facing Black Americans in the state of Georgia, tracing income, marital status, property ownership, and more for visual representation.The portraits render this information in a uniquely modernist style, opting for a simplified and stylized approach to data visualization. Du Bois turned numbers into solid color fields, bending bar graphs and spooling figures into spirals as he did so. In these deliberate representational decisions, Du Bois merged artistic inclinations with his sociological practice.
Ep 457 - The Comet by W.E.B. Dubois and Woeful Tales from Mahigul by Ursula K. Le Guin
The Color Line Strikes Again! The Problem of the 21st Century W.E.B. DuBois’ issue that continues today.
Race, Racism, and Why "Black Lives Matter"
The color line in the United States is the set of social, economic, and political barriers that exist between racial groups. This makes experiences different since we have barriers that separate how we live our life based on race. The Color of one’s skin is the key factor in the rights and opportunities we receive in the United States. In this podcast, I will uncover the truth about these barriers and how they still live on today. I will share my stories about how the color line has affected me and my life. I will also explain W.E.B. Du Bois phrase “color line” and dig deeper into the meaning and the feelings behind it. Without the same rights and opportunities, people of color will continue to be oppressed by the same very barriers that affected W.E.B. Du Bois. The United States is deep-rooted in racism and it takes people willing to uproot it and weed it out.

The book, published in 1903, contains several essays on race, some of which had been previously published in Atlantic Monthly magazine. Du Bois drew from his own experiences to develop this groundbreaking work on being African-American in American society. Outside of its notable place in African-American history, The Souls of Black Folk also holds an important place in social science as one of the first works to deal with sociology.This is a work of non-fiction.
