A Notebook on Eugene B. Redmond & the EBR Collection

I first began studying Eugene B. Redmond's work when I was an undergraduate at Tougaloo College in Jackson, Mississippi, during the late 1990s. His book Drumvoices: The Mission of Afro-American Poetry (1976) was a crucial gateway for my entry into the worlds of black poetry and African American literary history.  I have worked with Redmond on a regular basis since the fall of 2003, when I started working at SIUE.

Since 2009, I have published entries on our blog about Redmond and the EBR Collection. The photographs from the Collection have been integral to our mixed media projects and the many displays that we organize in the Underground Reading Room (formerly known as the EBR Reading Room) in Lovejoy Library. The following links include entries about Redmond and the EBR Collection.
