The Robert B. Silvers Lecture
This program is co-sponsored by LIVE from the NYPL

Following this year’s election, writer Darryl Pinckney will discuss the role of race and voting rights in American politics for the 2012 Robert B. Silvers Lecture. He is the author of the novel High Cotton, and, in the Alain Locke Lecture Series, Out There: Mavericks of Black Literature. He is also a former fellow of The Dorothy & Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars & Writers at the New York Public Library.

 
About The Robert B. Silvers Lecture:
 
The Robert B. Silvers Lecture is an annual series created by Max Palevsky in recognition of the work of Robert B. Silvers, editor of The New York Review of Books, of which he was a founder in 1963. The series features contemporary people whose fields correspond to the broad range of Mr. Silver's interests in literature, the arts, politics, economics, history, and the sciences.
