Shirley Du Bois and W.E.B. Du Bois

Mrs. Shirley Du Bois with husband, W.E.B. Du Bois
[Dr. Du Bois' 2nd marriage], 1950

.... "While there should be included among its writers the best students of Africa in the world, I want the proposed Encyclopaedia to be written mainly from the African point of view by people who know and understand the history and culture of Africans."

-- Dr. William Edward Burghardt Du Bois, A Statement Concerning the Encyclopaedia Africana Project, April 1, 1962

..

The legacy of the Encyclopaedia Africana Project and the Encyclopaedia Africana Dictionary of African Biography 20-volume set, dates back to 1960, in Ghana, West Africa, when W.E.B. Du Bois witnessed the inauguration of the independent Republic.

At that time, First President Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, asked Dr. Du Bois if he would plan an Encyclopaedia Africana.  Dr. Du Bois consented to do this and to consult personally and by letter a number of persons who might be interested in this project.
