Learn the history of the Du Bois Freedom Center in Great Barrington
Lenox— The Lenox Library presents the next installment of their Distinguished Lecture Series on Sunday, February 5 at 4 p.m. in the Sedgewick Reading Room. Historian Kendra Field will talk about the establishment of the new Du Bois Freedom Center in Great Barrington.
Kendra T. Field, Historian-in-Residence, is Associate Professor of History and Africana Studies and director of the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at Tufts University. Her first book, “Growing Up with the Country” (2018), traced the migration of her Afro-Native ancestors after the Civil War. Her current book project, “The Stories We Tell,” is a history of African American genealogy from the Middle Passage to the present. Dr. Field abridged David Levering Lewis’ Pulitzer-prize winning “W.E.B. Du Bois: A Biography” (2009). She is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships from the Ford Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and Harvard University’s Charles Warren Center. Dr. Field has advised and appeared in historical documentaries including Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s “The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross,” “Roots: A History Revealed,” and “Tulsa Burning.”
This event is free and open to the public.
