John Carlos Companion Guide: The Cushing Library offers a companion guide to The John Carlos Story that lists books, DVDs, websites, and other materials related to the themes explored in this year’s common reading.
The guide also includes a discussion, “Black Power Movement and Global Injustice,” which places John Carlos and Tommie Smith’s protest during the the 1968 Olympics in the broader context of other social justice movements of that era. Also see the Library’s Pinterest story board about John Carlos.
Talk about Syria: We counted well over 40 students, faculty, and staff at the conversation about Syria held in the Library’s Glass Lounge this Monday by Dr. Arun Rasiah and Dr. Chris Patrinos, SNJM. Thanks for enlivening the Library with such well-informed discussion!
