Making the Wright Connection

An Online Community for the Study of Richard Wright

North-South Wright Connection

Posted on February 25, 2011 | No Comments

As a result of their work together this summer, Shelia Bonner, Bob Darragh, Kristine Fields, Emily Robbins and Matt Presser have established a collaborative project to enhance their teaching of Wright’s work. They describe their project in this way: “Our project aims to bring together students of different backgrounds for a diverse discussion of important short stories. Our collaboration centers on a particular work by the author Richard Wright and pairs it with more modern texts. It also invites a dialogue between students — ranging from middle schoolers to community college students from the North and South.”
