Black History Month Event: Student Research Showcase

Join UIW students for a virtual research showcase of student work related to Black history and heritage on Thursday, Feb. 11 from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. KaShori Lanier will share her research and a scene from The Murder of Molly Smith, a play she wrote about her ancestor who was lynched. Lanier wrote the play for a project she undertook in Margaret Mitchell's Theatre for Social Change class. Students from Dr. LuElla D'Amico's American Women's Writing and Popular Culture class will also present original research on Phillis Wheatley Peters and Honor Fannone Jeffers. The students are participating in the national Society of Early Americanists' (SEA) Common Reading Initiative about Jeffers' 2020 award-winning book of poetry, The Age of Phillis, which imagines the life and times of Revolutionary-era poet Wheatley Peters. Selected projects will be featured at this UIW showcase and at the SEA national conference. Join the showcase:
