This is an afternoon that celebrates a remarkable friendship. Each of the three people involved has had a distinguished career. Troy Duster and Russ Ellis were both professors at Berkeley; Duster became president of the American Sociological Association and Ellis served as Vice Chancellor. Thelton Henderson spent 37 years as a federal judge, seven of them as Chief Judge of the Ninth Circuit of the U.S. District Court.

After growing up in a highly segregated world, throughout his working life each of the three often found himself the first black person to fill a particular job or receive a particular honor. For some sixty years, they have known each other, seen each other through hardships, crises and joys. For the first time, all three of them come together on stage to discuss and remember the ways they have sustained each other.

The event will be moderated by Adam Hochschild.

The event is sponsored in collaboration with UC Berkeley Retirement Center.

Donations will be invited for the Ashby Village - UC Berkeley Retirement Center partnership.
