Descendant of Dr. W.E.B. DuBois
Jeffrey Alan Peck is the great-grandson of Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois, the famous African American sociologist and civil rights activist who was one of the earliest forefathers of Pan-Africanism, and was one of the co-founders of the NAACP.
Jeffrey continues Dr. Du Bois' legacy by engaging in socio-political discourse, working closely with non-profit organizations that are involved in racial justice, equity, and empowerment, being an active member of Bishop James Dixon's "Community of Faith" Church, and annually commemorating Dr. Du Bois' memory in Great Barrington, Massachusetts in February of each year. Jeffrey is a Houston native, who aspires to increase awareness and affinity for Dr. Du Bois throughout the South and within ignored black communities.
Before devoting his time to fully focusing on Dr. Du Bois' legacy, he held employment with the US Post Office from 86-87, Brink's from 87-92, Baytown Fire Department from 92-96, Lyondell Petrochemical from 96-99, and Lubrizol Corp from 1999 to the present as a Lead A Operator. Currently, Jeffrey devotes his time to speaking at Universities and children's schools across the U.S. to educate about DuBois' legacy.
