In November 2018, The New York Times published “Black Male Writers for Our Time,” an article that highlights some of the African-American male writers who have won prestigious awards in recent years. For instance, Gregory Pardlo won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 2015, while Colson Whitehead won the National Book Award in 2016 and the Pulitzer in 2017. In 2018, Kendrick Lamar made history as the first rapper to win the Pulitzer Prize for music. Although they have been writing for generations, the literary establishment is now recognizing and rewarding Black male literature.

Faculty learning communities offer an environment in which normally isolated spaces, places, and disciplinary-specific language and cultures can interact to produce new insights into members’ professional identity and pedagogy while simultaneously enriching a college’s broader community of ideas. The structure of such groups also has the benefit of being far more flexible than formal or ad hoc committees, which are often constrained by end-oriented goals, college bylaws, and other such protocols.
