W.E.B. Du Bois and the 1900 Paris Exhibition

W.E.B. Du Bois wanted the world to know the gains African Americans had made since the Civil War, as well as their plight as second-class citizens. In 1899, Daniel A.P. Murray, an African American researcher and historian at the Library of Congress, worked with Du Bois and others to gather pictures and other items to show the state of African Americans at the beginning of the 20th century.

Their award-winning “Negro Exhibition” debuted in Paris, France, in 1900. It featured 500 photos of African American communities, successful black businesses and schools, as well as books and pamphlets by African American authors.
