It was a strictly A-list crowd that turned out at the Four Seasons for the 50th Anniversary of the Museum of African American History.
Co-chaired by power-pair Colette Phillips and Priscilla Douglas, the afternoon honored biotech mogul Tony Coles and Harvard professor Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot. On hand to offer their congratulations: Gov. Charlie Baker, the telegenic Karen Holmes Ward, bedazzling real estate broker Deborah Bernat, privacy expert Agnes Bundy Scanlan, former YWCA head honcha Marti Wilson-Taylor, political activist Nancy Korman, heavily bearded hipster Byron Rushing, banking bigwig Sushil Tuli, force of nature Kathy Taylor, restaurateur Darryl Settles and his flawless physician wife, Lisa Owens, crack journalist Carmen Fields, past honorees Wayne Budd and Carol Fulp, and just about every other person of color and consequence within a 50-mile radius.
The afternoon’s best remark: “I’d rather wait till I’m dead to be called a Living Legend.” ◆
