W.E.B. Dubois Center, Accra

3.7
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Accra
Peruse the library of a pioneering thinker at W.E.B. Dubois Center, established at the final resting place of the US-born founder of Pan-Africanism. Open to the public in 1985, the center is housed in the writer's former residence, in which the civil rights activist and writer spent the latter part of his life working on the Encyclopedia Africana. The center houses a small museum, some of the intellectual's personal effects, and his library--now available for researchers. A bronze bust and a granite grave of DuBois lie within the compound.

  • This was my second time there and even better this time. The first trip I did not have the pleasure of having a tour guide. This time I was given the history and it was very inspirational.  more »
  • Because of my timing, I was not able to go inside but the outside of the home and surrounding building were very nice. They do not allow pictures.  more »

  • THE ADMINISTRATOR DOES NOT GIVE AN HONEST OPINION ABOUT THE HALLS. THE HEAT IN THE HALL ON YOUR RIGHT IS UNBEARABLE!!! THAT ASIDE, ITS A GREAT PLACE AND QUITE AFFORDABLE
  • Great place to appreciate the history and struggles of panafricanism. Location is good. It is off the busy parts of Accra and security around Cantonments is generally very high.
