About the Event

From the Call for Papers: 

"From their inception over 150 years ago, Historically Black Colleges and Universities have provided students with a curriculum in English Composition that prepared them to compete in different professions and to advance the cause for social justice through the power of the pen. Iconic African American texts that illustrate mastery of composition skills have been rendered from the pens of HBCU professors and graduates: Martin Luther King Jr., at Morehouse College; W. E. B. DuBois at Clark Atlanta University, Alice Walker at Spelman College, and Toni Morrison and Amiri Baraka at Howard University, among others. We can continue this African American intellectual tradition by teaching students in this millennia and the future to write using the iconic texts of our literary forbears and contemporary writers"
