 And the Legacy of African Americans in the National Parks


The National Park Foundation’s African American Experience Fund  honored the life and legacy of historian, author, professor and environmentalist Dr. John Hope Franklin at its fifth annual fundraising gala, titled "Celebrating a Tradition of Excellence." Award winning journalist Gwen Ifill served as Mistress of Ceremonies, and acclaimed documentarian Ken Burns, director of the upcoming film National Parks: America's Best Idea -- made possible with support from the National Park Foundation -- delivered a special tribute to Dr. Franklin.  The gala  commemorated the critical role of African-Americans in the rich heritage of the National Parks if America. The black-tie event was  held at the Rainbow Room,  cocktails began at 6:30 p.m. and dinner at 7:30 p.m.

The African American Experience Fund dedicated the evening to honor the significance of Dr. Franklin’s legacy.  A graduate of Fisk University, Dr. Franklin received both his A.M. and Ph.D. degrees in history from Harvard University. His illustrious 60 year teaching career that began Fisk University took him to such prestigious institutions as Howard University, Brooklyn College, where he was the first person of color to chair a major department, the University of Chicago and Duke University where he is currently the James B. Duke Professor of History Emeritus.

More than 250 philanthropic, corporate and individual supporters of AAEF attended.  Guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and entertainment at the cherished New York venue.  Proceeds from this event will support youth education programs at national parks and historic sites that preserve and celebrate African-American history and culture.
