    William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was an American sociologist, socialist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, writer and editor. DuBois was a Fisk graduate of 1888 and was the first African American to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard. He was the co-founder of NAACP, and famed author of The Souls of Black Folk. DuBois developed the Talented Tenth Theory which describe the likelihood of one in ten black men becoming leaders of their race in the world, through methods such as continuing their education, writing books, or becoming directly involved in social change and is the namesake of our accepted students weekend. The statue was sculpted by James Miles ’73 and cast by Russell Faxon and is the only statue on Fisk's campus
