Thank you to Laurie Epstien and the Berkshire Edge for such a great piece that showcases our programs!
The steering committee for the project is seeking significant participation from the community as we focus this mural on highlighting Du Bois’ experience and connection to his hometown of Great Barrington and the impact it had on the trajectory of his life thereafter.
To help involve the community on a larger scale, a Facebook page was created to serve as a resource for anyone who would like to be involved directly with the creation of this mural and/or anyone who would like to stay up to date with the progress.

In the heart of Great Barrington, there once was an epic mural. It commemorated a local individual who was able to rise above during the hardest of times.
We are happy to announce that we will be revitalizing the mural, with a goal of having the project completed by the end of September, 2016
Local folks and friends are welcome at the Railroad Street Youth Project to talk and hear about W.E.B. Du Bois and his many great moments in history.
Below are some photographs of the original mural.
