Westside Summerfest: Du Bois & Van Der Zee in the Berkshires

  • Durant Park 310 Columbus Avenue Pittsfield, MA, 01201 United States (map)

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.
