Past McSilver Awards
On Monday, June 4, 2018, an audience from across the NYU community and the city gathered at the Rosenthal Pavilion atop NYU’s Kimmel Center to celebrate seven distinguished honorees. For the sixth annual McSilver Awards, we celebrated honorees who are truly vanguards for social justice, including Tarana Burke, Marley Dias, Erica Ford, Maria Hinojosa, Michael Hurwitz, Anna Deavere Smith, and Reverend Michael A. Walrond. Learn more about the 2018 McSilver Awards:
