    The 1960s and 70s saw a flowering of African-American poetry unprecedented in American literary history. The poets of the Black Arts Movement fused artistic experimentation with political engagement, giving voice to the complexities of the Black experience in the years immediately following the civil rights movement. Unlike previous generations of African-American poets, many of these writers were able to make their work available to the public through Black-owned and operated presses, thus freeing themselves from the editorial control of the white literary establishment. Black publishing outlets such as Dudley Randall’s Broadside Press, Haki Madhubuti’s Third World Press, and many others, allowed for a diversity of voices within the African-American community while also linking individual poets to a larger cultural enterprise.

    This exhibit draws on ZSR Special Collections’ extensive holdings to highlight the achievements of both the poets and the people who published them during these pivotal decades in American history.

    In Minding Bodies, Susan Hrach uses new research on the body to help instructors improve their students’ knowledge and skills through physical movement, attention to the spatial environment, and sensitivity to humans as more than “brains on sticks”. Let’s meet and talk about how we can create creative embodied, sensory-rich learning experiences that maximize the effectiveness of the time we spend learning with our students.

    Meets three times this semester (2/1, 2/15 & 2/29) on Thursday from 3:30-4:30 in ZSR 664 (Faculty Commons Conference Room inside the Faculty Commons space in ZSR Wilson Wing). We will provide the book for the first 12 registrants. These discussions are very popular so we ask that you register only if you are available to attend all sessions.

    (Please note: You must register before the first session to attend)
