The Campus Reading Community was launched in Fall 2010 here at Jackson State University. Its vision is to inspire reading throughout the JSU campus and the surrounding community. Having discussed books such as “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, “The Souls of Black Folk” by W.E.B. DuBois, “Lynch Street” by Tim Spofford, and Medgar Evers: Mississippi Martyr by Michael Vinson Williams, this Reading Community has been a way to stimulate the intellectual discourse on the campus and local community.
Beginning in October, the 2013-2014 Campus Reading Community will begin a new academic year with new discussions on the campus of Jackson State.
This discussion will be on the book:
On the Road to Freedom: A Guided Tour of the Civil Rights Trail
By Charles Cobb, Jr.
This in-depth look at the civil rights movement goes to the places where pioneers of the movement marched, sat-in at lunch counters, gathered in churches; where they spoke, taught, and organized; where they were arrested, where they lost their lives, and where they triumphed.
Please join us in this important discussion on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. for this installment of the 2013-2014 JSU Reading Community.
