In honor of Black History Month, the MSU Library, Diversity and Inclusion Student Commons (DISC), and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion will host a book display during the month of February. "Prose and Poetry 4 Women Writers" will feature works by Audre Lorde, Tracy K. Smith, Mahogany L. Browne, Roxane Gay, and other black women writers. This display will be on the second floor of Renne Library outside of Archives and Special Collections. The books of poetry and prose will be available for check out.
"MSU Library is pleased to partner with DISC and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion during Black History Month,” said MSU Library’s Lori Hiris. “There has been a resurgence of interest in the work of Audre Lorde via republications and webinars featuring prestigious authors she has inspired, and we are pleased to showcase these important works."
Additionally, an exhibition celebrating Black History Month will be featured in the display case in the lobby of Renne Library, and the Understanding Black Lives book colletion continues to be featured in the Bobcat Browse area on the first floor of the library near Brewed Awakening. The collection includes an accompanying LibGuide for those wishing to delve deeper into the topic.
