William Edward Burghardt (W.E.B) du Bois, 20th Cousin 1x removed

William Edward Burghardt is my 20th cousin 1x removed. The ancestor who connect us together is, Henry Plantagenet (1207 – 1272), my 19th great grandfather.

William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was created on February 23, 1868 – August 27, 1963. He had been an American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, writer and editor. Born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, Du Bois was raised in a somewhat tolerant and integrated community, and after finishing graduate just work at the University of Berlin and Harvard, where he had been the very first African American to earn a doctorate, he became a professor of history, sociology and economics at Atlanta University. Du Bois was one of many founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.
