For our latest installment of Get Caught Reading, we asked Robert L. Robinson, UM Coordinator of Multicultural Student Affairs, the following:
1) What are you reading?
The Autobiography of Medgar Evers, with commentaries by Myrlie Evers-Willams and Manning Marable. I also just finished The Shack by William P. Young. I would highly recommend both books.
2) Why did you choose this book?
Medgar Evers has been a hero of mine since I was a child. I was born and raised in Mississippi and learned about the courage of Medgar Evers and other civil leaders at a very early age. I have always felt that "history" has never given him the recognition he deserves. The Shack was a recommendation from my wife.
3) How do you use your campus library?
I often go there to gather information on or research a specific topic and end up leaving having learned something on multiple topics. The librarians are some of the friendliest and smartest people on campus. It is just a great environment in which to learn.
