Two New Library Displays: Dismantling Racism & Materials Science

Two new displays have been put up in the library.

One display is from the Dismantling Racism Student Caucus.  It asks questions about equality like "Is it easy to find bandages whose skin tone matches your own skin tone?"  This display also contains books of interest such as Tim Wise's "White Like Me" and Beverly Tatum's "Why are all the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?"

The second display focuses on materials science and nanotechnology.  Examples of how materials science/nanotechnology is used in today's society are given such as Gorilla Glass' use in making our cell phone screens more resistant to damage.
