Two upcoming Brown Bag presentations in the Library Multipurpose Room will celebrate African American History Month.
Tomorrow, Thursday, February 18, from 12:05 to 12:50 PM, students in English 341, Cultural Studies – African American Literature, are going to read excerpts from writings by African American authors. Their instructor, Dr. Marcy Tanter, will also read a few poems by Lucille Clifton, who died this past weekend. Refreshments and student attendance slips will be available.
A week later, on Thursday, February 25, from 12:10 to 12:50 PM, Minority Student Leadership will present a program on African American Heritage. Pizza and drinks will be provided, and student attendance slips will be available.
On your way to and from the Multipurpose Room, check out the displays on African American History Month, including books, videos, and music by African American authors and artists, in the library's lobbies (done by Tarleton's Office of Diversity and Inclusion), and on the main level near the computers (done by library staff).
