Notes

This poster introduces the lecture series UNT Speaks Out on the Human Library. Instead of print or electronic media, the books in this library will be human beings who have experienced prejudice due to issues such as race, gender, disability, ethnic origin, sexual preference, mental illness or lifestyle choices. The "books" at this event are people who have volunteered to challenge prejudice through respectful conversation with members of the UNT campus and the greater Denton community who borrow them for fifteen to thirty minute conversation. The Human Library concept was developed in 2000 by members of the Danish Youth Organization Stop the Violence. It is now operational in more than 60 countries.
