Black Panther books arrive
A couple of my colleagues and I earned a grant to work with several high school black boys on an arts project, primarily focusing on African American poetry. However, since the project will also highlight imaginative activities, we're also including a comics book: The Black Panther. All of the high school participants are from Illinois, and some are from East St. Louis. Thus, I'm especially pleased to make the guys aware that the writer for The Black Panther is Reginald Hudlin, who's also from Centerville and East St. Louis.
Some of the books we purchased arrived in the mail the other day, and seeing them here together has me even more excited about working with the high school students poetry and comics in the fall.
