The following Writers Against Racism writers are heading to Princeton University this summer to participate in a panel discussion at the National Diversity in Libraries Conference.
Edi Campbell (Media Director – seen above)
LaTonya M. Baldwin (COLOR ONLINE Literacy Advocate)
Amy Bodden Bowllan (Blogger/Educator)
Doret (Bookseller, A major bookstore chain)
Edi was kind and diligent enough to organize, write, and send the proposal (thanks to Zetta Elliot’s lead and her encouragement in having us submit.), and she just recently received the following notification from the NDLC committee.
"We were very impressed with the number and quality of proposals we received and I am pleased to inform you that we have accepted your proposal, Claiming the Center: Online Community, Activism, and Advocacy."
This is truly thrilling!
And the fact that the theme for the conference is now available, we certainly have our work cut out for us in preparing for this honor.
The National Diversity in Libraries Conference (NDLC) is a biennial event that serves as a regional meeting for library staff members and interested parties to discuss diversity issues, especially issues common to the host region’s culture. With the theme, NDLC 2010: From Groundwork to Action, the conference will take place from July 14–16, 2010 in Princeton, New Jersey. (comes via NDLC’s official wiki)
Thanks, Zetta and Edi!
