The Black Studies Book Sale

Contributor Vince Manuel checking out Richard Wright
To conclude our education and ideas festival, we will host a book sale Thursday, December 8, from 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on the first floor of Peck Hall.

This book sale, a black books book sale in fact, serves as a fund-raising effort for our program. And more importantly, the book sale provides students with an opportunity to browse through a fairly large collection of books by and about African Americans.

The chance to look over hundreds of black books in one place can be an important activity for raising consciousness. There's all kinds of intellectual and intrinsic value about sifting through a "black studies" section of a makeshift bookstore.

So if you're around, stop by. Bring a friend. Our books are between $1 - $5. Even if you don't plan to buy anything, it might be worth stopping by to check out what we have.
