UD project to digitally preserve Paul Laurence Dunbar’s legacy

(April 22, 2020)

The legacy of Dayton native Paul Laurence Dunbar will be forever preserved in a digital archive thanks to a nearly $100,000 grant awarded to the University of Dayton.

On April 7, the National Endowment for the Humanities awarded UD a three-year $99,992 implementation grant to develop interdisciplinary courses and create a digital archive to help preserve the legacy of Dunbar, one of the first influential black poets in American literature.

The award supports the “Paul Laurence Dunbar: Life, Works, and Legacy” project through the NEH’s Humanities Connections program.
