The Center for Black Literature Turns 10 Years Old!
The year 2013 is a milestone year for the Center for Black Literature, as we are celebrating 10 years of Honoring the Literature of people from the African Diaspora. We are in the process of planning events for this anniversary and we are hoping our friends and supporters will help us to celebrate throughout the year. To support the upcoming programming we are having our very first Gift Drive and we would like YOU to be a part of it! Learn more
The National Black Writers Conference
NBWC Biennial Symposium*
Saturday, March 30, 2013
10:00 AM – 6:00 PM
The Center for Black Literature hosts National Black Writers Conference (the 3-4 day conference) every even year and the NBWC Biennial Symposium (one day) every odd year.
Toni Cade Bambara(1939–1995) was a writer, social activist, educator, feminist, and filmmaker. The legacy of her contributions to the African-American literary canon have rightfully earned her the distinguished reputation of being not only a storyteller but an amazing truth teller.
Invited Panelists: Farah Jasmine Griffin, Malaika Adero, Sonia Sanchez, Eugene Redmond and others!
