An Evening with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

Henry Louis "Skip" Gates, Jr. with Claude Steele

Thursday, October 23, 2008 | 7:30–9:00pm | Kresge Auditorium | Free and Open to All

Join us for a wide-ranging conversation with Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr., one of the most influential voices in American academia today. Claude Steele, who has known Professor Gates over the course of his long, pioneering career, will guide an interview that illuminates various dimensions of this leading scholar’s life and work at Harvard, where he served as chair of the Department of African and African American Studies from 1991 to 2006, as a writer for The New Yorker under Tina Brown, as a film and television documentary producer, and as a keen observer of the role of race in American society and politics.
