Lecture/Panel Discussion

What do we do when we do not know all the facts?  When we present history, we inevitably fill in the gaps, create the voices that spoke, the characters that lived. Historian Jane Kamensky, filmmaker Louis Massiah, and playwright Ain Gordon will lead a panel discussion about how historians and artists handle this predicament. “An Artist Embedded” programs are supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.

Lecture/Panel Discussion

Journalist Peter Binzen and his son, Jonathan, will discuss their new book, Richardson Dilworth: The Last of the Bare Knuckled Aristocrats.  Binzen knew Dilworth well, covering him for many years as a reporter. A politician and liberal reformer, Richardson Dilworth served as mayor of Philadelphia from 1956-1962.  Among his many achievements, his vision for the city shaped much of what we recognize about Philadelphia today: Independence Mall, Society Hill, SEPTA, and the public park system.
