The W.E.B. Du Bois Honor Society
2020 National Conference
Tallahassee, Florida — March 28, 2020

Hosted by the Florida State University Chapter

The Relevance of the Teachings of W.E.B. Du Bois in the 21st Century

The 2020 biennial conference theme encourages reflection on the current state of Black life in the United States. During this conference, we hope to examine the complex ways in which Black people had to struggle to overcome serious challenges to their citizenship during Du Bois’ time and the current uncertainty of maintaining the significant gains that were made by those determined to live as free and equal by any means necessary.

The national conference will include:

  • Keynote speaker
  • Workshops designed to provide information, strengthen and encourage individual members and chapters.
  • Roundtable discussion
  • Breakfast and lunch
