Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. provided us with a lot to think about.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in honoring W.E.B. DuBois:
"We cannot talk of Dr. Du Bois without recognizing that he was a radical all of his life. Some people would like to ignore the fact that he was a Communist in his later years.
It is time to cease muting the fact that Dr. Du Bois was a genius and chose to be a Communist. Our irrational, obsessive anti-communism has led us into too many quagmires to be retained as if it were a mode of scientific thinking."
