Members were invited to join us for a celebration of the arts and humanities— the first event of our 2019 Induction Weekend. We heard from newly elected Academy members including theater director and scholar Harry J. Elam, Jr.; composer, singer, and songwriter Patricia Barber; playwright Donald Margulies; and writer, poet, and nonprofit leader Elizabeth Alexander. We also watched a short video featuring artist Mark Bradford.
