The next chapter in the “Living Stories” initiative of the Missouri State University Libraries will be held on Thursday, April 26th in MSU’s Plaster Student Union, Room 132, from 1:30 to 3:00 and from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
The MSU Libraries and MSU’s Diversity and Inclusion division are collaborating to host our second Living Stories project at the Collaborative Diversity Conference in late April. The Living Stories theme this year is Racism in 2018 and beyond: a changing dynamic.
Our living books will share what racism means to them through their cultural and professional experiences. Our readers of these living books will be able to learn how the topic of racism intertwines with social, cultural, gender, or religious identity. Book titles include Robiann Broomfield’s Daughter of Jamaica and Monica Horton’s #BlackGirlMagic: Songversations with Monica. If you would like to experience being a living book, please contact Jir Shin Boey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
