In December 1918 W. E. B. Du Bois sent a memorandum to the NAACP’s Chairman and Acting Chairman detailing the agenda for his trip to France, which was reprinted in these minutes. In the memorandum he proposes a scheme for a three-volume History of the Black Man in the Revolution of 1914–1918. He also discusses his plans for the Pan African Congress. Fifty-seven delegates from 15 countries attended the Congress. The NAACP also sponsored Pan-African Congresses in 1921, 1923, and 1927.
