10609 Necessary Voices: The Black American Experience in Literature   NEW!

To advance the necessary work of addressing long–term systemic racism, we will read and discuss three books written by Black authors about the Black American experience: Toni Morrison’s 1993 Nobel Prize–winning Sula, Ta–Nehisi Coates’s 2015 National Book Award–winning Between the World and Me, and Zora Neale Hurston’s PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick, Their Eyes Were Watching God. Each of these writers asks readers to consider what it is like to live as a Black person in the United States."

Required: Any edition of Toni Morrison, Sula; Ta–Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me; and Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God.
