SUNY Buffalo State College

One-hundred fifty years ago, Buffalo Normal School was founded to train teachers to serve Buffalo’s fast-growing student population.

Today, Buffalo State College hosts students from all over the world interested in a wide variety of academic majors. Our reputation as a community-based, urban-engaged institution was built on the foundation of service and beginning in September, we will be celebrating a monumental anniversary reflective of all of the years we’ve been honored to serve the City of Buffalo and its talented students. We want you to be part of our year-long celebration that will kick off in September 2021! Stay tuned and visit 150years.buffalostate.edu for more info!

Ursula K. Le Guin

We are delighted to announce that the 33rd stamp in the United States Postal Service Literary Arts series honors Ursula.

From the USPS press release: "The background shows a scene from her landmark 1969 novel 'The Left Hand of Darkness,' in which an envoy from Earth named Genly Ai escapes from a prison camp across the wintry planet of Gethen with Estraven, a disgraced Gethenian politician. The artist for this stamp was Donato Giancola. The art director was Antonio Alcalá. The words 'three ounce' on this stamp indicate its usage value. Like a Forever stamp, this stamp will always be valid for the value printed on it."

The exact day of release isn't confirmed yet, but will be mid-year. You can read more at usps.com/newsroom

Thank you @USPS for this distinction!

Nuyorican Poets Cafe

With heavy hearts, we bid farewell to poet and visionary Miguel Algarín, founder of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. In his Lower East Side apartment, the Cafe was born as an outspoken and passionate collective of poets, musicians, theater artists and activists. Miguel was a brilliant poet, an influential professor and leader, and a supportive mentor who inspired and guided generations of artists. He edited popular anthologies of poetry and theater, helped launch the Nuyorican Literary movement and championed spoken word, hip hop and theater by Latinx and Black artists. The literary world owes Miguel a debt of gratitude. He will be greatly missed.
