W.E.B Du Bois Data Portraits Visualizing Black America

Premiering at the 1900 Paris Exposition, Dubois's bold and visually arresting infographics were lauded as groundbreaking. The graphic nature of the work and sociological content were the first to reveal the view of Black Americans.

Writer, sociologist and activist, W.E.B. Dubois strategically captured nearly all aspects of 1900 black experience. From advancements in education to lasting effects of slavery. Innovative and socially provocative these images remain as important and relevant today as they were 120 years ago.
