I just wanted to thank Jearold Hersey for putting together a great event last Wednesday: Gateway to African American Literature and Scholarship. To begin, Jearold facilitated a discussion among the group about our favorite black authors, actors, poets, and artists. Next was our guest of honor, Pima County Public Library’s Elva Smithwhite, who recently received the Ms. Rosa Parks Living History Makers Award for Education. She engaged the audience with her storytelling and passion for librarianship. It was truly a night to remember! Thanks to Jearold for organizing the event, Elva for taking her time to meet with us, and to all that came and participated.
