Great Barrington Selectmen appoint Du Bois legacy panel
W.E.B. Du Bois, perhaps Great Barrington’s most famous resident, will have his legacy in the town perpetuated thanks to a newly formed committee that will meet regularly and oversee town events and programs honoring the legendary scholar and African-American civil rights activist.
Last night in Town Hall, the selectboard appointed a roster of members who will comprise the W.E.B. Du Bois Legacy Committee.
