Event description

Description

Join us for an open house celebrating African American literature and authors at the Givens Collection of African American Literature on Sunday, February 19, 2-4 pm.

Established in 1986, the Givens Collection is a community resource for collecting, preserving, and making accessible nearly 250 years of works by African American authors, playwrights, artists, and more. Since 2014, the Givens Collection has partnered with Penumbra Theatre Company to lead a national digital initiative that facilitates access to African American history and culture, Umbra Search African American History (umbrasearch.org), an online search tool that brings together more than 400,000 digital objects from over 1,000 US libraries and archives.

We hope you come for light refreshments, conversation, and brief remarks at 2:30 by local artists and scholars who have worked with the Collection as researchers and artists in residence.
