This looks like a fantastic event! Wine, food, music and the chance to rub elbows with a famous author, a controversial civil rights activist and a Hollywood director all in one evening. How do I get tickets?

Resized Image THE 6TH ANNUAL PRESERVATION AWARDS CEREMONY

The 2006 Awardees will be celebrated at our 6th Annual Preservation Awards Ceremony, a special public event on Wednesday, May 31, 2006 at the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre in Journal Square from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Presented by the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy at the conclusion of National Historic Preservation Month. Sponsored by Metrovest, Lord Abbett, PSE&G, Lindemon Winckelmann Deupree Martin and Associates, Van Vorst Park Association, Goldman Sachs, Liberty Realty and the historic Temple Beth-El.

We are thrilled to be able to recognize and bestow honors upon these heroes of the preservation community, and we hope you are able to attend the ceremony to meet them and sing their praises!

The event will include live lobby music, buffet, wine, slide show, exhibit, presentation of awards and a private tour of the theatre. In 2005 we drew a crowd of over 250, but we hope to top that number this year, demonstrating the public's growing passion for--and commitment to--historic preservation in Jersey City.

Resized Image SPECIAL ADDED EVENT:

As a special precursor to the May 31 Awards Ceremony, the Conservancy, in collaboration with the Jersey City Museum, will be holding a one-time public screening of the 1991 film "Cousin Bobby" at the Jersey City Museum, 350 Montgomery Street, on Tuesday, May 30, from 6: 00 to 8:00 p.m.

The 70-minute film focuses on the embattled life and times of the Rev. Robert Castle, a 1960s-era Episcopal priest in the heart of Jersey City's then-blighted Bergen Hill neighborhood and, later, after a self-imposed exile, Harlem. In the eyes of the Jersey City politicians and police, Castle was a constant thorn, a reckless civil rights advocate who knew no rest; to the African-American and Latino communities, he was a selfless civic leader, a savior for the silenced and oft-persecuted minority.

Demme, the director of such acclaimed films as "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Philadelphia," made "Cousin Bobby" as a tribute to his older cousin Castle. Critics praised the film's honesty and gripping portrait of one of the most controversial yet important religious figures to emerge out of the Civil Rights Movement.

A brief Q&A will follow the screening. Mr. Demme will not be able to attend the museum event, but he is scheduled to attend the Preservation Awards Ceremony to watch his cousin receive long-overdue recognition.

Tickets are $10 at the museum reception desk, or you may reserve your seat inside the museum's Caroline L. Guarini Theater with a credit card by calling the museum at 201-413-0303 x 141.

I hope to see everyone at both the Awards Ceremony and the "Cousin Bobby" screening!

John Gomez
Founder and Past President
Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy
