*W. E. B. Du Bois Lecture: **with Edward Carson**
The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line. 
W.E.B. Du Bois enshrined this iconic observation in 1900, while speaking 
in London at the Pan African Congress. Du Bois repeated this phrase in 
his 1903 work, Souls of Black Folk, as he challenged Negro oppression in 
an undemocratic country. This lecture brings Du Bois’s political and 
faith-based critique of suffering and the human condition to life, as it 
draws from his biblical interpretations and ideological framing of the 
color-line thesis.

Edward Carson is a residential faculty member in the history department 
at Brooks School, in North Andover, Massachusetts. His current research 
looks at race, religion, and society, particularly that of W.E.B. Du 
Bois. He is working on a book titled W.E.B. Du Bois's Editorial 
Influence on Western Negro Migration. He edits for The Christian Century 
Magazine Then and Now, and sits on the Christian Scholars’ Conference
