SPRINGFIELD — A well-known Springfield church is set to announce a partnership with the W.E.B. Du Bois Center at the UMass Amherst Libraries to promote the writings by the Massachusetts-born civil rights leader.
St. John’s Congregational Church is scheduled Monday to give details of the new partnership.
The 165-year-old historic church is one of the oldest and active black churches in New England. It has deep ties to the anti-slavery and civil rights movement.
Du Bois was born in Great Barrington in 1868 and was a founder of the NAACP. He wrote more than 4,000 articles, essays and books, including “The Souls of Black Folk.”
