The Bluest Eye

Freshmen Comp. Class publishes Starter Guide to The Bluest Eye

As part of an innovative service learning initiative, Dr.  Jennifer Hayes' freshmen composition class created and released a reader's starter guide for Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye.  From the website: "Contemporary readers might find  some of Morrison's references hard to place. Misunderstandings can undercut the power of this important work. Consequently, I have created a project for my freshman students to help create a reading guide that explains some of the introductory ideas to help people new to the work."  Learn more by clicking here:  The Bluest Eye Starter Guide. 

  Anthology Cover Students enrolled in Writing for Publication Fall 2018 produced this evocative publication as part of a service-learning contribution to the  I Want to Write Initiative.   In this semester-long pursuit, students researched and visited area plantations, then wrote poetry reflecting their experiences.  Collaborations with TSU's History and Art departments helped in bringing this effort to fruition.  LLP celebrates their engaged effort and looks forward to future publications from these promising students.
