W. E. B. Du Bois Memorial Centre for Pan-African Culture is a memorial place, a research facility and tourist attraction in the Cantonments area of Accra, Ghana, that was opened to the public in 1985. It is named in dedication to W. E. B.
W.E.B. Du Bois, the iconic Civil Rights pioneer, author, and scholar was invited to Ghana by Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president, to help him write the Encyclopedia Africana. Along with his wife, Dr. Du Bois brought hundreds of books on his voyage to Ghana and renounced his U.S. citizenship. This collection along with ceremonial robes from Harvard, scrolls gifted to him by Mao Zedong, notebooks, and family photographs eventually became the W.E.B. Du Bois Memorial Center for Pan African Culture.
