The Mississippi Renaissance Syllabus will serve as an electronic source list and digital space that features biographical data and publications related to these figures, including Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Richard Wright, Margaret Walker, and Jesmyn Ward. It is our hope that the syllabus will make teaching and learning resources on this important and underrecognized period of Black literary history more accessible.
We invite submissions for article, chapter, book, documentary, and film titles relevant to the Mississippi Renaissance. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
