This year Brooklyn Historical Society has the pleasure of honoring Constance and Henry Christensen III. For those of you who do not know Connie and Terry, they have dedicated themselves generously to a wide range of important Brooklyn institutions including Terry’s current position as Chairman of the Board at Theatre for a New Audience; and Connie’s long-standing service to the Brooklyn Museum. We are delighted to celebrate our 150th Anniversary with these devoted Brooklynites.
Our distinguished speaker for the evening will be David Levering Lewis. Mr. Lewis is the author of eight books, including a two-volume biography of W.E.B. Du Bois – W.E.B. Du Bois: Biography of a Race, 1868-1919 and W.E.B. Du Bois: The Fight for Equality and the American Century, 1919-1963. Each Du Bois volume received the Pulitzer Prize for Biography. In October 2003, Mr. Lewis was named Julius Silver University Professor of History at NYU. Most recently, he published God’s Crucible: Islam and the making of Europe, 570 to 1215. Mr. Lewis was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama in February 2010. His current project is a life and times of Wendell Willkie. Mr. Lewis’s subject for the evening will be “W.E.B. Du Bois in Brooklyn: The Final Decade.”
The Library Dinner has extremely limited seating. Contributions at the Chairman’s Circle ($50,000), President’s Circle ($25,000) and Pierrepont Circle ($10,000) levels will receive special recognition.
