LAWRENCE — On March 16, the Project on the History of Black Writing at the University of Kansas will present a first showing of selections from the 100 Novels Project.
The exhibit will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Alcove G in the Kansas Union.
The 100 Novels Project explores and celebrates the political, social, cultural and historical significance of 100 works of black literature. The temporal scope of the works is wide ranging, spanning from the late 19th century to the 21st century. Many of the works have been transformed into film and were staples on the New York Times bestseller list.
The Project on the History of Black Writing houses each of these texts within its archives. This is first of many exhibits that will highlight a small selection of authors and their works.
The Project on the History of Black Writing is one of KU’s important but often overlooked literary and historical resources. It has been in the forefront of research and inclusion efforts in higher education for 25 years.
