Black Literary Suite
The Black Literary Suite (BLS) is HBW's annual exhibit that has the goal of educating the larger community on lesser-known figures in literature and the arts. Accordingly, this experience also serves as an opportunity for members of the student-led HBW staff to learn and refine their research skills through the planning process. Past BLS exhibits have featured authors with a Kansas connection like Gwendolyn Brooks and Langston Hughes, Kansas sports figures to compliment the annual “Race and Sports Symposium,” and the ways Wikipedia presents information about Black writers. You can explore past exhibits below.
