A Letter to W.E.B. Du Bois

In 1930, W.E.B. Du Bois, the great civil rights leader, scholar and author, wrote to the University of Dayton to ask for information on African American enrollment. Du Bois was gathering information for an article about higher education in The Crisis, the magazine of the NAACP. This video explores the University of Dayton's response.
