Ever heard of W.E.B. DuBois? He was a big-time civil rights activist alive when Countee Cullen was writing. In fact, they were friends. Actually, more than that. Countee Cullen, being the superstar that he was, married DuBois's daughter, Nina Yolande DuBois. But it didn't last long. (Source.)

Do you know where you were born? Which city? That's awesome, because Countee Cullen didn't. Or if he did, it was never accurately recorded, so it's still up for debate. (Source.)
