A project on Richard Wright and his works, to include workshops and the development of teaching materials, for faculty and school teachers from the Mississippi Delta.

Funds from this project will be used to enhance MVSU faculty and area school teachers' knowledge of Richard Wrights literary works. The focus will encompass his fiction, non-fiction and little-known haiku. The program areas targeted by this proposal include: 1) to fund visiting scholars to review the university's humanities programs; and 2) to build ties between institutuions of higher learning and secondary schools. Our participants will be faculty and English teachers from the local school districts in the Delta.
