Acclaimed author, revered scholar, and prize-winning producer, Henry Louis Gates is the keynote speaker for the Migrations theme. A leading voice on African-American literature and the African diaspora, Professor Gates has also reached beyond academia to engage a wider audience. In 2013 his PBS documentary series, The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, won the Peabody award. This series is just one of several television projects that Professor Gates has created.
