Scholar, educator Aldon D. Morris is taking us on a historic journey as he helps to rewrite the history of sociology and acknowledges the groundbreaking work of W. E. B. Du Bois’ in the founding of the discipline. In Morris’ latest book, The Scholar Denied: W.E.B. Du Bois and the Birth of Modern Sociology, he calls into question the prevailing narrative of how sociology developed.  Morris, who is a major scholar of social movements, investigates the way in which the history of the discipline has traditionally given credit to a Caucasian scholar at the University of Chicago, who worked with the conservative black leader Booker T. Washington to render Du Bois invisible.

Dr. Morris joins me here on  Access Indy With Kim Wells which airs on 106.7 WTLC-FM Sunday mornings at 8 a.m. Eastern to discuss his own passions for righting a wrong, Du Bois’ rightful place in history, and why specific motivated people and society attempted to erase Du Bois’ place in it and the contributions of those who studied and applied his methods.
