The Center for Arkansas History and Culture just launched a digital exhibit on the life and work of Arkansas native Charlie May Simon. You can learn more about her at this well-curated site https://ualrexhibits.org/simon/. The Center for Arkansas History and Culture holds Charlie May Simon’s papers.
Dr. Kris McAbee wrote a piece on Simon’s feminist legacy for the digital exhibit, which appears on the site here, along with other essays on Simon’s life and impact. Our own English and Cooper Honors program alumna, Cameryn Kirkham, completed her Cooper project in May 2018 using Charlie May Simon’s life as a way to teach place-based literacy.
