Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College, CUNY

Spearheaded by Dr. Brenda M. Greene, the Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College builds on the tradition and legacy of the National Black Writers Conference and serves as a voice, mecca, and resource for black writers and the general public to study the literature of people from the African Diaspora. It is the only Center devoted to this in the country.
