We are delighted to announce that former Congressmen Barney Frank will accept the 8th Annual Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism—an award presented each year by the Humanist Community at Harvard, the American Humanist Association, and the Harvard Community of Humanists, Atheists, and Agnostics.
Mr. Frank was selected by a committee of undergraduates for his career in politics and superlative contribution to Humanism in the public sphere. He represented Massachusetts' 4th district from 1981 to 2013, for a total of sixteen terms, and in 1987 he became the first openly gay member of Congress. We are excited to honor his life's work in the promotion of values shared by our community.
Past recipients of the award include novelist Salman Rushdie, musician and biologist Greg Graffin, filmmaker Joss Whedon, TV 'Mythbusters' Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, writer and actor Stephen Fry, writer Mary Roach, and comedian Eddie Izzard.
Join us for a night of celebration on Friday, April 4 in the Harvard Science Center as we honor Mr. Frank.
