Du Bois Data Visualizations: A Julia Recipe

07/29/2022, 12:50 PM1:00 PM UTC

We introduce a new plotting package allowing users to easily create publication-quality figures in W.E.B. Du Bois’s unique style of data visualizations. A groundbreaking sociologist and historian, Du Bois collected data on Black Georgia residents in the late 19th century and designed over 60 eye-catching graphs to depict these data at the 1900 Paris Exposition. We showcase our package by replicating the original figures exactly and by revisiting them with new data.
