Mightier than the Sword
August 27, 2016 – July 29, 2017

Mightier than the Sword examines the history and evolution of African American literature from the 18th century to the present – from autobiographical slave narratives to the creative explosion of the Harlem Renaissance and from the Black Arts Movement to modern-day authors, poets, and playwrights. The exhibit will feature influential black authors and examine the role literature has played in shaping public opinion on political and cultural issues.
