Civil Rights pioneer W.E.B. DuBois was born in Great Barrington, MA on February 23, 1869. On the 150th anniversary of his birth, the Berkshire County town is paying tribute to its native son. DuBois was a prolific author and some of his writing has become source material for Ted Thomas, director of the W.E.B. DuBois Youth Ensemble, which is among the scheduled performances. Thomas and performer Harmony Phillips spoke with host Carrie Saldo about the upcoming W.E.B. Dubois tribute at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center.
