A checklist of my IRIS sites

Frederick Douglass and Literary Crossroads -- We first set this site up in fall 2018 as part of the NEH Summer Institute that we ran in 2019. It served as a description of the project and as a portal for applications. We updated it for our 2021 NEH institute. We'll revise it for broader public use in fall 2021. Katie Knowles and Ben Ostermeier handled design. I supplied the content and images. 

Representing Richard Wright's Black Boy -- This site was designed to display covers of Richard Wright's autobiography Black Boy. The site was produced in April 2020, with Ben handling design. I wanted a site that allowed visitors to scroll horizontally to view the different book covers. 

• The Wonderful Wordless Phrasings of Amiri Baraka -- This site was designed to showcase audio excerpts from the poet's readings. The site was produced in April 2020, with Ben handling design. A site focusing on the different sounds of birds gave me the idea for this site. 

• The African American Poetry Tracker -- This site, which I'm also thinking of a digital resource, provides information about black poetry publishing histories in anthologies. Meg Smith handled design of the site.
