Come see our latest exhibit “Mightier Than The Sword.”

“Mightier Than the Sword” examines the history and evolution of African American literature from the 18th century to the present - from autobiographical slave narratives to the creative explosion of the Harlem Renaissance and from the Black Arts Movement to modern-day authors, poets, and playwrights. The exhibit will feature influential black authors and examine the role literature has played in shaping public opinion on political and cultural issues. “Mightier Than the Sword” will be on display through July 29, 2017
