Below is a sample of the titles that were suggested. Our work organizing and formatting suggestions has been slowed as we respond to the global pandemic and outbreak of COVID19 as well as the ongoing protests against police violence toward Black people and communities. We are adding to the list below as we can. In the meantime, you can read the unformatted list of titles if you wish to see all the suggestions.

If you would like to add a suggestion to the Bibliography, please contact Anne Knafl.

Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage: Haiti

Wiley, Kehinde, M. Cynthia Oliver, and Mike Rogge. Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage : Haiti = Sèn Mondyal La Ayiti. Culver City, CA: Roberts & Tilton, 2015.

While Kehinde Wiley's exhibition catalog was never checked out, patrons interacted with it a lot by flipping through pages to look at the various portraits and then replacing the book opened to a different page.


Ewing, Eve L., Kevin Libranda, Luciano Vecchio, Matt Milla, and Clayton Cowles. Ironheart. New York, NY: Marvel Worldwide, 2019.

All books were available to be checked out by patrons. We added new books as others were removed. Ironheart, by UChicago faculty Eve Ewing, was one of the first books that a patron checked out from the exhibit.

Suggestions are arranged alphabetically by author. Last updated July 25, 2020.
