Curating the #DuBoisChallenge2022

This presentation describes the process and results of running a Data Visualization challenge on Twitter, celebrating the legacy of W. E. B Du Bois. Along the way we will explore the differences and zietgeist of the early twentieth century with the present day. The talk will also outline the tools and processes used to re-create over 50 of Du Bois' classic visuals using modern means.
