Special Collections to house archives from The Black Academy of Arts and Letters

During the past 38 years, a nonprofit cultural arts institution in downtown Dallas, The Black Academy of Arts and Letters, has hosted Academy Award nominees, Grammy winners and some of America’s most noted jazz musicians and comedians, as well as unknown performers who later became famous.

Bureaucracy: A Love Story

Bureaucracy: A Love Story is the spring exhibit in the Special Collections reading room. The exhibit is open to public Monday-Saturday from 8 am – 5 pm and runs January 21-May 8, in Willis Library, 4th floor, room 447.

Bureaucracy is arguably one of the most loathed inventions of Western modernity. Yet, even as we complain about red tape, paperwork and Wikipedia, we also love to hate it—because we (clandestinely) rely on it to structure our world.
