New York City Human Library/Call for Participants

Lehman College's Leonard Lief Library is partnering with the New York City Human Library [https://www.humanlibrarynyc.org/] for an online Human Library event:

What is the Human Library?
The Human Library is an organization that began in Denmark in 2000 and now has chapters [called Depots] all over the world.  In a Human Library, real people are “Books” on loan to Readers, giving Readers the opportunity to listen to their stories first-hand. 

Human Library NYC public events break down social barriers by providing a safe platform for individuals to challenge their own stereotypes and prejudices.

If you would like to register to be a 
Book or a Reader - please fill out this Interest Form:

What is a Book in the Human Library?

What is a Reader?

Online Reading Group: Olio by Tyehimba Jess

Throughout Black History Month, One Book One Bronx, in collaboration with the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College, will host a series of eclectic programs and reading groups as part of the yearlong initiative Lift Every Voice: Why African American Poetry Matters. Sponsored by the Library of America and The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Lift Every Voice seeks to engage participants in a multifaceted exploration of African American poetry. 

Join us on Tuesdays in February for a three-part discussion of
Olio by Tyehimba Jess, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize. Part fact, part fiction, the book weaves sonnet, song, and narrative to examine the lives of mostly unrecorded African-American performers directly before and after the Civil War up to World War I.

Reading: Elhum Haghighat

The Middle East and North Africa have recently experienced one of the highest population growth rates in the world, which has profoundly affected the wider region and its institutions. In addition, the recent period of unprecedented political turbulence has further complicated the picture, resulting in uprisings and resistance movements that have coincided with intense shifts in socio-cultural norms, as well as economic and political change.

The complexity of these changes is further explained in the context of demographic transitions [mortality, fertility, migration] that work in concert with development [economic and social modernization] and ultimately, democratization [political modernization]. These three Ds [Demographic, Development, and Democratic transitions] are central to Elhum Haghighat's analysis of the Middle East and North Africa at this crucial time.

Elhum Haghighat is Professor and Chair of Political Science at Lehman College.
