Carole Boston-Weatherford and R. Gregory Christie to Visit CCYAL

sugar hill Children's book author/illustrator collaborators, Carole Boston-Weatherford and R. Gregory Christie are set to visit the Univeristy next Thursday, April, 27, 2017 from 7:00-8:00p.m. at Alumni Hall Room 27.  We hope you'll make plans to attend this lecture, which will focus on the prolific careers of both, especially focusing on their two collaborations, Sugar Hill and Freedom in Congo Square.

Sugar Hill shares biographies of Harlem Renaissance artists Count Basie, Duke Ellington and other significant people of that time such as W.E.B. Dubois, Zora Neale Hurston, and Thurgood Marshall.  

Freedom in Congo Square tells the story of slaves in Louisiana on Sunday and their freedom celebrations.
