Instagram photo by weshazard-- #BlackHistoryRepeatsItself - Day 23 -- . . . . Happy Birthday W.E.B. Du Bois Edition . . . . **Left: "The Southern Primer: Or Child's First Lessons in Spelling and Reading" An ante-bellum grade school textbook from the mid-atlantic which features slaves picking cotton on the frontispiece. It was, of course, exclusively for white children...being as the overwhelming majority of black children in the area were enslaved & forbidden from learning how to read upon pain of the lash...(1860)** . . . . **Right: Recent news piece detailing how the the U.S. Department of Education, under new secretary Betsy DeVos, tweeted a photo/quote of legendary Black scholar, writer, activist, & NAACP co-founder William Edward Burghardt "W. E. B." Du Bois which spelled his last name incorrectly as "DeBois". Hours after being roasted non-stop on social media for the gaffe the U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION tweeted an apology where they misspelled the word "apologies". (Toronto Star 2/13/17)** . . . . **Below: Excerpt from the FBI's declassified (though heavily redacted) file on Du Bois. They tracked him for years, collecting news clippings, interviewing associates, & covertly attending speeches. They were primarily concerned with his socialist leanings (he flatly rejected communism but did praise the thought of Karl Marx & saw the root of US racism and class inequality as capitalist greed). They found nothing traitorous or prosecutable in all of their surveillance. And while it's generally a pretty rotten practice to spy on someone for dedicating their life to educating, empowering the marginalized, and to eradicating injustice I will tip my hat to the Bureau for at least getting his name right.** . . . . Black History Repeats Itself is the daily social media art/history project I'm doing for Black History Month wherein I take pieces from Black publications over the last century (Jet Magazine, The Crisis, Ebony, Essence, etc) & compare them to stories from 2016 - present. Nobody, absolutely NOBODY in this country or the world can afford to lose sight of history & to my eyes so much of what we're dealing with now is due to an unfamiliarity with it, or worse: a willful denial.
