This semester, a group of us (50 or so black men at SIUE) are covering Adrian Matejka's The Big Smoke (2013) – a volume of poetry concentrating on heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson. On September 25, in Lovejoy Library, we held the first of a series of public exhibits that we are doing related to Matejka's book. What follows are a few images from the event.
Funding for the project is made possible in part by an ENRICH Course Enhancement grant from SIUE's Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
