Cleveland Humanities Festival 

When: Thu., March 23 2017
The second annual Cleveland Humanities Festival – exploring the theme of immigration – kicks into high gear today. At noon, Cleveland Museum of Art curator of photography Barbara Tannenbaum gives a lunchtime talk on selected works by photographers Leonard Freed, Céline van Balen and others who have depicted immigrants and immigration. At 6 p.m., renowned Harvard historian and host of PBS’ Finding Your Roots Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr. gives the festival’s keynote address on the topic of ancestry. The Gates Jr. talk is sold out, but it will be live-streamed to Case’s Tinkham Veale Auditorium. The Cleveland Humanities Festival runs through April 24, with core events running from today to April 2. Most events are free but require registration. Visit the website for more info.
