Publishing Update:⁣⁣
From all of us at The Olivetree Review, we hope you’re staying healthy and safe. As many of you already know, distance learning has already shifted the dynamics of spring semester, especially for club activities. Sadly, we will not be physically printing Issue 67 and instead are postponing the distribution to fall semester. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In the meantime, our past Issues can be found on our ISSUU page. We hope our creative works can offer inspiration and comfort during this time. 💚⁣

Kicking off #BlackHistoryMonth with poet, anthropologist, novelist, children’s writer and playwright #CounteeCullen, one of the most influential voices of the #HarlemRenaissance. Cullen has won more literary prizes than any other black writer of the 1920s. He “was celebrated as the golden exemplar of black and cultural leaders who sought to engineer a new image of black people in America.” A posthumous collection of his poetry was published in 1947 titled “On These I Stand.”⁣
