Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr.

The lecture celebrates 50 years of diversity at ECU. It is the third in the 2011-2012 Voyages of Discovery Lecture Series presented by the ECU Harriot College of Arts and Sciences.

He earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in English literature from Clare College and the University of Cambridge and his B.A. summa cum laude in history from Yale University.

Gates’ awards and honors include selection to Time magazine’s 25 Most Influential Americans list, a MacArthur Foundation genius grant, a National Humanities Medal, election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters and 44 honorary degrees.

In 2006, he was inducted into the Sons of the American Revolution, after he traced his lineage back to John Redman, a free Negro who fought in the Revolutionary War.

He serves on the boards of the New York Public Library, the Whitney Museum, Lincoln Center, the Aspen Institute, the Brookings Institution, the Studio Museum of Harlem, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Stanford University’s Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.

    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted
    to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  43. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  44. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate you taking
    the time and effort to put this content together. I once again find myself spending a
    significant amount of time both reading and commenting.

    But so what, it was still worth it!
