A Look Into Westport’s Past Through Historical Postcards Image
A reception was held tonight to mark the debut of an exhibit of 25 Westport historical postcards in the newly redecorated hallways and lobbies of Westport’s historic Colonial Green at 246 Post Road East.  Presented by Marc Nevas Real Estate and Sellars and Lathrop Architects, the postcards feature Westport in the 19th and early 20th centuries. They are from the collection of former Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff. Pictured (l-r)  are Marc Nevas, Howard Lathrop, and Franco Fellah looking at an enlarged postcard of Holy Trinity Church as seen c. 1863. The accompanying description says that in 1944 the Christ Church and Holy Trinity Church combined to form Christ & Holy Trinity Church, still at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Church Lane.

Insight Into the U.S. Black Vote Image
Author, playwright and New York Review of Books contributor Darryl Pinckney tonight discussed the evolution and impact of the black vote in U.S. society at a talk at the Westport Country Playhouse. Reading excerpts of his book, “Blackballed: The Black Vote and U.S. Democracy,” Pinckney outlined his own journey during an era of unprecedented social change. The event, co-sponsored with the Westport Library, preceded tonight’s preview performance of the Playhouse production of Lynn Nottage’s “Intimate Apparel.” The play weaves an intricate tapestry of the joys, sorrows, tragedy and triumph of a gifted but lonely African-American seamstress in early 20th-century Manhattan.
