UChicago Celebrates Black History

Stop by the first floor of the Regenstein Library to see “UChicago Celebrates Black History”!

The books were suggested by UChicago students, staff, faculty, and librarians. They include material by UChicago faculty Eve Ewing and Dwight Hopkins. You’ll also find books, comics, catalogs, and DVDs that explore all dimensions of Black life, history and experience.

Thanks to all who made suggestions. Please note that some recommended texts are not on display due to their high popularity— many of them were checked out. All suggestions will be featured in a bibliography on a web exhibit in March.

The exhibit was curated by Anne Knafl, Bibliographer for Religion, Philosophy, and Jewish Studies, and Matthew Vega, Hanna Gray Library Graduate Fellow and Ph.D. student in Theology. Also, with lots of help from UChicago library staff.

Email Anne Knafl at aknafl@uchicago.edu to make a suggestion for the bibliography!
