At last, images of civil rights leader W.E.B. Du Bois take their place in Town Hall
This year marks the 150th birthday of perhaps the most famous figure in Great Barrington history.
The legendary scholar and civil rights leader W.E.B. Du Bois was born Feb. 23, 1868, so next year will mark what would have been his 150th birthday. In his honor, the town and Du Bois organizations are planning a weeks-long celebration.
