This small museum is in Dubois’ former home. It houses photos, documents and furnishings from the life of this African-American internationalist. The real value is in the guide’s commentary, which was fascinating.

This site is good for those who want to learn more about Pan Africanism and its impact on the continent of Africa and Ghana for that matter through the life of Dr. Dubois.

This center or house is packed with so much real history. It felt like I was reading a book. Going through the rooms was like turning the pages of the book. My guide definitely knew her history. The Center is well-kept and inspiring.

The center has Dr. Dubois' casket entombed in a separate building. Next to it is a pedestal table with his wife's ashes inclosed in a glass case. Quite a memorial.

Visiting the home of this influential man was moving and interesting. I did not know much about his life at all, and left with a deeper understanding and much appreciation for his life and his work.
