Planning Multicultural Reading Day

Two of our concentration members, Danielle Melvin and Gera Miles, are planning a Multicultural Reading Day for Spring 2011.  Danielle writes, “The idea originated from the African-American Reading Day that we did Feb. 15, 2005.  We had a brief program and students and faculty were able to read a passage from their favorite Afro-American author, or recite a passage of their original work.  It was all followed by a reception.  We held the program at the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center.”  Danielle and Gera would like to see the readings be “more inclusive” of our different cultural literatures this Spring.  As soon as we have chosen a date, we’ll let you know.  A great turn-out would be an exciting way to celebrate who we are.
