In his 1903 book "The Souls of Black Folk," writer W.E.B. DuBois predicted that the true problem of 20th-century America would be what he called "the color line." The Civil Rights Project at Harvard University Law School has convened the Color Lines Conference to discuss how far the civil rights movement has come in the 100 years since DuBois' book, and how far it has left to go.
