BIPOC Plays (PASJ Grant)


Through a generous grant from the Jesuit Foundation, we have added a selection of BIPOC Plays to the Gleeson Library Collection. Funding was made through the 6 + YOU Initiative, which strives to create opportunities to address racism, with a particular focus on anti-Black racism.
