Mississippi Renaissance Syllabus Call for Sources
KU Project on the History of Black Writing (HBW) is pleased to announce the Mississippi Renaissance, our 2017 Black Literary Suite (BLS). The BLS is an annual audiovisual exhibit purposed to educate the public on lesser-known writers of the Black diaspora. This year we are highlighting writers with roots in Mississippi who explore the region's racial, class, and sexual politics in their works.

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:
