The Butler Banner Project


On October 1st, a banner was hung from the top of Butler Library with the names of eight women writers and visionaries: Maya Angelou, Gloria E. Anzaldúa, Diana Chang, Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Morrison, A. Revathi, Ntozake Shange, and Leslie Marmon Silko.

Throughout the semester, we will be hosting a series of events honoring the writers and the themes they discussed in their works.
