Join us on Thursday, February 16th, as we continue our celebration of Black History Month, which will focus on “Picturing Black Childhood: African American Images in Children’s Literature.”  E.B. Lewis, a pioneer in the field of children’s illustration and a repeat recipient of the Children’s Africana Book Award, will discuss his career, during which he illustrated more than 70 children’s books, including Nikki Grimes’ Talkin’ About Bessie: The Story of Aviator Elizabeth Coleman, which received the 2003 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award.  

The event will begin at 6 p.m. in the Campus Center’s Raptor Roost.  All are welcome, but registration is required.

This event is sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor, the Office of Civic Engagement, the Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts, Africana Studies, and the Camden County Library System.
