Bitten by the rock ’n roll bug in his late teens, Dolenz had already played guitar in a number of bands before being chosen in 1966 to star alonside Davy Jones, Peter Tork, and Mike Nesmith in a TV show called "The Monkees." Within only a few weeks, Dolenz and his bandmates quickly rocketed to worldwide fame as both TV and recording stars-their millions of fans even included The Beatles.

Following the breakup of the group in 1969, Micky continued to work as an actor, director, producer, and performer. After spending nearly a decade in London producing and directing a number of theatre and TV projects, Dolenz took part in a Monkees reunion tour in 1986.

William Edward Burghardt DuBois was born on February 23, 1868 in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. He graduated in 1888 from Fisk University, a black institution in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1895, he became the first African-American to receive a PhD from Harvard University. DuBois was an early exponent of full equality for African-Americans; in 1905, he became a cofounder of the Niagara Movement, which became the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.

From 1897 to 1910, DuBois taught economics and history at Atlanta University. In 1910, he became editor of the influential NAACP magazine, Crisis; it was a position he held until 1934. That year, he resigned over the question of voluntary segregation, which he had come to favor over integration, and returned to Atlanta University, where he taught until 1944. His concern for the liberation of blacks throughout the world led him to organize the first of several Pan-African Congresses (Paris, 1919). In 1945, at the Fifth Congress in Manchester, England, he met with African leaders Kwame Nkrumah and Jomo Kenyatta. After being disillusioned with the slow progress of civil rights in the US, DuBois became a member of the American Communist party in 1961. During the last two years of his life, he lived in Ghana. He died in 1963.
