The Du Bois Institute will host the 2011 NEH Summer Institute for College Teachers “African American Struggles for Freedom and Civil Rights 1865-1965,” on June 27-July 22, 2011. The 2011 NEH Institute is part of an ongoing effort to identify and review monographs and primary source materials that provide for a deeper understanding of African American efforts to secure full citizenship and civil rights, and to situate that movement within the broader context of American history. During the four-week program, teachers will engage in an intensive program of reading and discussion with leading scholars, reviewing new and recent scholarship as well as a rich array of sources – oral histories, memoirs, documentary films, music and archival sources, particularly the papers of the NAACP.
