We’ve gathered a list of five Latinx authors whose works we recommend reading, along with Spanish-language databases and other resources available from the Library.
“Portrait of a Poet—Revisited: William Edward West’s Percy Bysshe Shelley,” a new exhibition at UVA Library, makes a bold and compelling claim.
“The Harlem Renaissance has come to the University of Virginia’s Grounds,” begins a UVA Today article featuring the Library’s newest exhibition. “[The exhibition] examines the works in the period of Black artistic and intellectual activity centered in a New York neighborhood. The Harlem Renaissance began in the early 1900s as racist violence and diminishing economic opportunity pushed Black Southerners to head north in a movement known as the Great Migration.”
Featuring the visionary works of writers, artists, and thinkers of the Harlem Renaissance, “Their World As Big As They Made It” examines the creative and intellectual pursuits that defined Black American identity and political consciousness.
