The University of Massachusetts-Amherst is home to the W.E.B. DuBois papers, which includes correspondence, speeches, articles, pamphlets, poetry and other items authored by the scholar and co-founder of the NAACP. In addition, the collection contains photographs, newspaper clippings, audio clips, and more. For those who can't make the trip to Amherst, the university has digitized nearly 100,000 items in this collection, which visitors can browse by type of material and by date. Included in this extraordinary collection are articles published in The Crisis; hand-written essays that DuBois penned as a student at Harvard University; and notes and clippings that DuBois used during his research. Another highlight of this collection is an audio clip of a speech DuBois gave in April 1960 before the Conference of the Association of Social Science Teachers at Johnson C. Smith University.
