Celebrating Multicultural Excellence: Publications by Faculty of Color

The Center for Multicultural Excellence and the Anderson Academic Commons are proud to present a display of books written by faculty of color at DU!  Take a moment to browse this (non-exhaustive) sampling.  Discover a new book from a favorite professor, or perhaps a new favorite book! 


Mini Displays

We have two additional mini displays this month!

- The Palestinian Nakba -

The Nakba, an Arabic word meaning “catastrophe,” commemorates Palestinians’ displacement from their land both before and after the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. Over a half million Palestinians, many of whom became refugees in neighboring countries, were forced to leave their homes and villages. As the Nakba is remembered on May 15, this display seeks to offer windows into the ongoing human rights situation through a variety of Palestinian and Israeli art, film, memoirs, poetry, photography, and prose.



- Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month-

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Anderson Academic Commons has created a book display to showcase a small sample of the innumerable contributions to literature, academia, and art made by Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans.
