Spotlight: A Harvest of Knowledge

Spotlight: The Color of Truth

“Spotlight: A Harvest of Knowledge” is a display that tells the stories of ordinary people who accomplished the extraordinary. We invite you to partake of the harvest, learn from it and be inspired.

“You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.” -Shirley Chisholm

The UI Cultural Houses and Resource Center managed by the Office of Student Life are fundamental in bringing to light issues that are important to African Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Latinos and Native Americans and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender community. The “Spotlight Series” displays are meant to connect the library to the UI cultural houses and resource center.
