2015 marks the 100th anniversary of Margaret Walker‘s birth. To celebrate the life of this remarkable author, Jackson State University’s Margaret Walker Center is sponsoring This is My Century: 100 Years of Margaret Walker, 1915-2015, a year of programming devoted to Walker’s work.
HBW invites its readers to submit blog posts and/or longer essays about topics related to Dr. Walker and her work.  We’ll begin featuring these posts as early as next week, when we share Walker scholar C. Liegh McInnis’s insightful reading of “For My People,” recently delivered at the Oxford Conference for the Book.
For information about how to submit pieces for consideration on the HBW Blog, please contact
