W.E.B. Dubois Center, Accra

3.7
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Accra
Peruse the library of a pioneering thinker at W.E.B. Dubois Center, established at the final resting place of the US-born founder of Pan-Africanism. Open to the public in 1985, the center is housed in the writer's former residence, in which the civil rights activist and writer spent the latter part of his life working on the Encyclopedia Africana. The center houses a small museum, some of the intellectual's personal effects, and his library--now available for researchers. A bronze bust and a granite grave of DuBois lie within the compound.
