Attend tonight’s lecture on W.E.B. Du Bois in Hoover 105

The university community is welcome to a special guest lecture by Warner Pacific University President Brian Johnson at 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday) in Hoover 105. He will present “W.E.B. Du Bois in African American Intellectual and Christian History.”

William Edward Burghardt Du Bois, commonly known as W.E.B. Du Bois, was an intellectual, sociologist and civil rights activist whose contributions significantly impacted the African American struggle for equality and justice.

Dr. Johnson authored the biography W.E.B. Du Bois: Toward Agnosticism, 1868-1934. In the book, he describes the evolution of religious views from Du Bois’s birth until his resignation as editor of Crisis magazine in 1934.

Dr. Johnson is a sought-after speaker, accomplished professor, scholar and academic administrator. He serves as the first minority president in Warner Pacific University’s 83-year history. To learn more, visit this page.
