HBW Celebrates 30 Years!!!

[By Goyland Williams]

In HBW’s 30 year history, there have been a series of distinguished lectures, institutes, workshops, and scholars, who have contributed much to the advancement of African American Literature and Culture. The voices and faces that you will see and hear, are a testament to the quality of work and outreach that the Project on the History of Black Writing is committed to. Houston Baker, Eugene Redmond, Michael Eric Dyson, Jerry W. Ward, Jr. and Dr. Maryemma Graham are just a few of the prominent voices that you will hear on the subjects of black writing, black poetry,  and black artistic/ expressive culture. 

The Look Back Series begins as an effort to examine both the past and present. Where have we been
and what new directions are we willing to take?... are just a few of the questions that have
preoccupied HBW leadership for the past 30 years. Join us as we continue to explore and celebrate the rich history of HBW.
