Timothy Tyson author of The Blood of Emmett Till
Part detective story, part political history, The Blood of Emmett Till is an explosive reconstruction of the lynching, the trial, and their crucial impact on our history. Award winning author Timothy Tyson uses a range of sources — including the only interview ever given by Carolyn Bryant, along with her unpublished memoir — to tell the definitive story, in which black power and a mother's courage confronted America's enduring racial caste system. Tyson writes profoundly and cinematically to revise and redefine a history that still confounds us today in the age of Black Lives Matter.
Take advantage of a rare opportunity to hear from New York Times bestselling author Timothy Tyson. Among his many accomplishments, Tyson is a senior research scholar and professor at Duke University, adjunct faculty at UNC Chapel Hill, and serves on the executive board of the North Carolina NAACP (Rev. Dr. William Barber, President). The Blood of Emmett Till is available in the Bookstall and in the Anderson Library.

Each week's class will include breathing techniques, physical movement, and meditation to support the weekly theme and help us explore each of the seven principles and purposes from a different perspective.

Go: A Chinese Game
Go is a board game which originated in China more than 2,000 years ago. It was recently in the news, being the last of the great games to have a computer program beat a top-ranked human player. It’s played on a board marked with a 19x19 grid, with black and white stones competing for territory. The rules are simple, the strategy tough but interesting. Please stop by and check it out — we think you’ll want to take it up!
