LGAND, the Latinx Graduate Association at Notre Dame, is asking for book donations for our fundraiser event on November 15th.
Last year, LGAND created a campus-wide campaign to raise funds for those affected by natural disasters in the Caribbean and in Mexico. This year, we would like to continue our community outreach efforts to sponsor a local Latinx organization: The Navari Student Outreach Clinic.
The Navari Clinic is run completely by students and physicians volunteers. Their mission is to provide basic health care to uninsured and under served members of South Bend, Indiana; which includes a big number of people with a Hispanic/Latinx background, as well as African American patients.
They offer Spanish speaking interpreters when needed. The patients are never charged, and they are provided with free medication when available. It runs solely on community grants and donations.
In order to raise funds for this organization, LGAND will have a Book and Bake Sale on November 15, 2018 in the Hesburgh Library Concourse.
We would really appreciate it if you could spread the word about this event when the time arrives. Our most urgent need right now, however, is collecting book donations to sell. We would be eternally grateful if you could help us by forwarding this message to everyone in your department and respective mailing list.
If anyone in your organization/mailing list is interested in donating books for our event, they can contact our Officers through email@example.com. We thank you in advance for supporting our organization and our mission here at Notre Dame!

Dear Faculty & Students at the University of Notre Dame:
We are reaching again out to invite you in hopes of creating a collective celebration of radical Black Love! The main event will be a Frederick Douglass Day Read-A-Thon to take place on his birthday, February 14, 2019. Our event will also be part of the year-long commemorations marking 400 years since the first documented arrival of Africans who came to English America (https://bit.ly/2PVt6j3).
Unlike more traditional read-a-thons that serve as contests, this one will involve people reading among themselves (like a book club or a class) AS WELL AS joining our “main event” happening in Philadelphia, via Live Stream.
We hope that Faculty & Students in partnership with your Africana Studies Librarian will have the opportunity to join the live-stream of the program, which will include a live performance of Douglass’ speech. It does not matter where your group is located. You can join us from anywhere! And if you’re up for it, your reading group can also call in to be on the live stream. This will be both a learning event and a party!
The two required readings for our Read-A-Thon will be:
Title:Address to the National Convention of Colored Men, Louisville Kentucky
Groups can join us online first and then leave the virtual space for their own reading/discussion activity. For this part of the event, a short excerpt from Douglass’ Address, or the essay by Sprague, could be read by the group and discussed. We will provide prompts to get the discussion going. The online portion that will happen earlier will provide the historical background needed for the discussions that will be done by the various groups.
If your networks include groups you think would be interested in participating, please share this information and tell them to to contact me.
Best, Curtis Small
On behalf of the Colored Conventions Project team

A central theme is the power of abstract art as a profound political choice and as a declaration of freedom. These artists not only resisted racial imagery, but also, pressure to create positive representations of Black Americans.
Dr. John Nietz spent much of his career at the University of Pittsburgh teaching in the School of Education. When he retired in 1958, he founded the Nietz Old Textbook Collection by donating his 9,000 volume library of early primary and secondary school texts. He had acquired the texts to demonstrate the history of teaching in the early years of the United States.
During his career, Dr. Nietz directed or advised over 30 dissertations and master’s theses based upon the collection. Dr. Nietz died in 1970. Since its establishment, the collection has grown to over 16,000 volumes through gifts and purchases
