Our Opinion: Du Bois and MLK: United in struggle | The Berkshire Eagle

lineW.E.B. Du Bois was born in Great Barrington in 1868, just five years after Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation freed the slaves and supposedly guaranteed equality for African-Americans. By 1956, 88 years had passed since that proclamation and Mr. Du Bois can be forgiven for bristling at the suggestion of Southern novelist William Faulkner that the civil rights movement required “patience and moderation.” (Eagle, Jan. 16).

“Moderation with no forward movement is surrender,” replied Mr. Du Bois. “Moderation with murder of the innocent is retreat.”

Mr. Du Bois had sought to debate Mr. Faulkner about civil rights in the wake of the lynching of 14-year-old Emmett Till in Mississippi and the acquittal of his suspected killers by an all-white jury. The…

By Heather Bellow, The Berkshire Eagle

GREAT BARRINGTON — The mission to restore a historic African-American church building is gaining more steam, with hopes for construction to begin in the spring.

Clinton Church Restoration has chosen Huff + Gooden Architects of New York City to oversee the project, which will transform the downtown property into an African-American heritage site and visitor center that will focus on the legacy of town native W.E.B. Du Bois, an early engineer of the civil rights movement.

The prominent African-American architecture firm will plan the restoration and design the building, which was the former home of the Clinton A.M.E. Zion Church on Elm Court.

South African Open – Long-range eagle on 17th gives lead to Schwartzel at South African Open

JOHANNESBURG — Charl Schwartzel sank a 75-yard eagle on his penultimate hole to card a second round eight under par 63 for the lead at the halfway point of the European Tour’s South African Open at the Randpark Golf Club on Friday.

Schwartzel’s 12 under par tournament total is one ahead of Zambian Madalitso Muthiya, who followed up his opening round 63 with a 68 on the tougher Firethorn Course.

With a massive 240 player field, the first two rounds are split between Firethorn and the shorter Bushwillow course which Schwartzel tackled in his second round.

Overnight leader Louis Oosthuizen managed nine birdies in his 62 on Thursday, but found the going much tougher on Firethorn with a 70 leaving him on 10 under par, tied for third with last weekend’s Mauritius Open winner, American Kurt Kitayama…
