The annual African American Read-in at Penn State Altoona will take place Feb. 16–17. This year’s theme is "Black Theatre through a Black Lens," celebrating the African American dramatic literary tradition.
An article written by Penn State Altoona's Roselyn Costantino — "The Maya Girls Use Technology to Bust Man-Made Divides" — was published in Ms. Magazine, a popular source for feminist news and information in print and online.
Performances of "And It Begins Like This," an adaptation of LaTanya McQueen’s book by the same name, were present Oct. 23–26, 2019. Assistant Teaching Professor Naomi Baker adapted the book for the stage and directed the production.
LaTanya McQueen, author of Penn State Altoona's 2019-20 Common Read selection, "And It Begins Like This," will present "Getting to the Root: The Role of Personal Discovery in Creative Nonfiction," on Oct. 10 in the Slep Student Center.
