The Center for Black Literature Turns 10 Years Old!

 

The year 2013 is a milestone year for the Center for Black Literature. We are in the process of planning events for this anniversary and we are hoping all of our friends and supporters will help us to celebrate all year long. To support the upcoming programming we are having our very first Gift Drive and we would like YOU to be a part of it!

From the press release:

 

Beginning in February 2013 and continuing through March 31, 2013, the Center for Black Literature will host an online fundraising drive to support literary readings and other programming throughout 2013. The Center is calling upon its community of writers and supporters who are connected by common experiences, resources and network to help to build awareness of the Center and to promote the fundraising drive. Writers, activists and community organizations are also encouraged to donate resources and gift items that donors can receive as a token for their contributions at varying levels. Donors can make donations online directly on the Center’s website.

The Center for Black Literature(CBL) est. 2003 at Medgar Evers College of The City University of New York will be hosting its first national gift drive.  All proceeds will support the CBL’s Tenth Anniversary Year (2013).  Local authors and writers may promote public awareness of CBL’s programs that honor the literature of writers of the African Diaspora.

Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College, CUNY

Founded in 2003, the mission of the Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College (CBL) is to expand, broaden, and enrich the public’s knowledge and aesthetic appreciation of Black literature. The Center is a nationally respected 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. The Center was also established to institutionalize the National Black Writers Conference (NBWC), founded by John Oliver Killens in 1986 at Medgar Evers College.

To achieve its core mission, CBL partners with local high schools, Medgar Evers College, as well as with literary, community, and cultural arts organizations nationwide. With our partners, we present public and academic programs to youth, high school students, college students, and the public. Our offerings include author readings, literary workshops, writer retreats, conferences, symposia, and a biennial journal.

Dr. Brenda M. Greene is the founder and executive director of the Center for Black Literature.
