Peacham Library: African American Experience: South to North

Personal writing by African-American authors can transcend self-reflection, becoming meditations on history, justice, and freedom from oppression. From Frederick Douglass’s first autobiography to Malcolm X’s incendiary account of his political awakening, the memoirs and essays in this series reveal as much about society as they do about their authors.

The Legacy of Racism

This series features recent Pulitzer-Prize winning works that consider the American legacy of racism through four genres. Created as a part of the “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” initiative, a special grant funded by the Mellon Foundation and administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils, which seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry.
