Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to join the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity and Kelvin Smith Library for an event celebrating the “Our Voices: Stories From Black Authors” series. The event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 22, from 3 to 4 p.m., in Kelvin Smith Library’s Art Gallery. Attendees will have a chance to listen, read and reflect on passages from Black authors. Refreshments will be provided.

Dean Dexter Voisin and Mark Chupp, associate professor and founding director of the Community Innovation Network, both share readings in the recorded series—Voisin reads an excerpt from A Talk to Teachers, by James Baldwin, and Chupp reads an excerpt from How to Be an Antiracist, by Ibram X. Kendi.
