About the Program
Kwame Anthony Appiah, law and philosophy professor at New York University, recounts W.E.B. Du Bois' time spent as a student at the University of Berlin. The author reports that Du Bois, who arrived in Germany in 1892, was taught by scholars whose historical study was mixed with their political activism, which proved to be a great influence on Du Bois. Kwame Anthony Appiah speaks with Cornel West, professor emeritus at Princeton University, at Labyrinth Books in Princeton, New Jersey.
