More Finished Lines to Cross with Cary Clack and Naomi Shihab Nye

February 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Cary Clack has captured the hearts and minds of Texans for more than thirty years as a journalist and editorial board member with the San Antonio Express-Newswhere he was the first Black metro desk journalist, as well as pursued interests in politics, social policy, and service, including work with the mayor of San Antonio, U.S. congressman Joaquin Castro, and others.
In celebration of Black History Month and the release of his latest book, More Finish Lines to Cross: Notes on Race, Redemption, and Hope, we invite to an evening with Cary in conversation with beloved poet and good friend Naomi Shihab Nye. More Finish Lines to Cross is a collection of Clack’s best short- and long-form columns since his return to the San Antonio Express-News in 2019, published by Trinity University Press. It includes more than eighty pieces about critical issues of today including Donald Trump, and the war in Ukraine to the impact of COVID, the death of George Floyd, and the mass shooting of schoolchildren in Uvalde, Texas. Along the way we meet the people who influenced Clack, which in turn reminds us to reflect on how we become the people we are and what inspires us to be better members of our community.
Tuesday, Feb. 20. Reception begins at 6 PM and the conversation begins at 7 PM, followed by a book signing.
Ruth Taylor Recital Hall | Trinity University. Free and open to the public. Parking and map here.
Sponsored by Trinity University Press and co-sponsored by the Trinity University Black Student Union, the Trinity University Humanities Collective, and the San Antonio African American Community Archive and Museum.
