“Legacy of Courage: W.E.B. Du Bois and The Philadelphia Negro” is a 19-minute documentary that tells the story of the research that Du Bois did in Philadelphia’s old Seventh Ward in the 1890s for his classic book, The Philadelphia Negro.

This video is part of “The Ward,” a research, teaching, and public history project dedicated to sharing the timeless lessons from W.E.B. Du Bois’ 1899 book, The Philadelphia Negro. We seek to teach high school students about Du Bois’ major contributions to social science and civil rights and engage a broad audience in an honest dialog about the continuing impact of race and racism.
