Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
W.E.B Du Bois is famous for co-founding the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and for his book 'The Souls of Black Folk'. However, he also produced an astonishing set of infographics for the 1900 Paris Expositions disputing racist pseudoscience and charting the lives of Black Americans. The complete set of visually striking images, created with a team of African American students at Atlanta University, are now on display at the House of Illustration, along with new works by Mona Chalabi, Data Editor at The Guardian, inspired by Du Bois's originals. Based in Kings Cross, the HoI is on a roll right now with this being the latest in a string of superb programming choices.
