This July The Mastheads is taking on The Gilded Age, concentrating our programming on five cultural figures of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century: writers Edith Wharton, Henry James, and W.E.B. Du Bois; photographer James Van Der Zee; and Mark Twain, who gave the era its title.
On Sunday, as part of the Westside Summerfest series hosted by the Westside Legends, Dr. Frances Jones-Sneed will lead a discussion of writer and NAACP co-founder W.E.B. Du Bois and photographer James Van Der Zee in the Berkshires. Afterwards we'll party (of course!) with food and live music.
