Coretta Scott King Awards Exhibits

Coretta Scott King Awards exhibit  

The exhibit runs from February 3, 2014 to February 28, 2014 in the Children's Literature Center on the Fourth Floor of Pollak Library North.

About the Exhibit

The Coretta Scott King (CSK) Award was established in 1969 to address the lack of representation of African-American authors and illustrators previously absent from Newbery and Caldecott award recognition for children's literature. The mission of the CSK Award is to recognize the artistic and narrative achievement and contributions of African-American children's authors and illustrators.

In honor of Black History Month, our February children's literature exhibit will feature CSK Award winning and honor books spanning the last two decades. The exhibit will also feature hallmark studies on children's books by, for, and about African-Americans.

This year's CSK Awards were announced on Monday, January 27, 2014. Look for them in the Pollak Library Children's Literature Exhibit this month!
