Scope and Contents:
Annual national observance of African American history month program. The 1999 program was called 'W.E.B. DuBois Symposium: "Souls of Black Folk" in the 21st Century: Implications of Race, Culture, and Pan Africanism in the Global Village'. This program honored one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, the distinguished social historian, scholar, and activist William Edward Burghardt DuBois. DuBois lived during the time period between reconstruction and the modern Civil Rights era. DuBois' work provided new inquiries for both historical and sociological inquiry into African American life and culture; new models for research and study of urban sociology; and new intellectual tools for the sociological analysis of the unique complexities of race and class in the United States. DuBois changed the way scholars and the public viewed the "Negro Problem" and put the African American struggle within the context of racism and colonialism.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) presented Race and Rights on Friday. Program included panel discussions, performances, and a video screening.

The Program in African American Culture holds an annual national observance of African American history month in February. The 2004 conference commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954. The Brown decision legally ended the practice of segregated education in the United States. The program highlighted the lawyers that worked on the case and its legacy. It was emphasized throughout the program that much work remained to be done in fulfilling the promise of Brown. Several scholars convened to present papers about the case. There was a video screening of The Road to Brown, which highlighted the life of Charles Hamilton Houston, a civil rights lawyer and key figure in the case.
