Arden by Emerald Yu ’19
Happiness by Jane Kenyon, 
recited by the winner of the Poetry Out Loud Competition, Maria Tews ’19

Service by Mr. Matthew,
A tribute to the four black men who tried to get service at a white's only lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1960. 

Their names, we have long since forgotten four. 
Inspired by thoughts of equal civil rights,
They sat and ordered coffee is the lore.

A peaceful protest swelled to various sites
In Greensboro, Nashville, Winston-Salem too. 
The people sat not knowing future fights.

Bewildered Woolworth knew not what to do. 
Support and harmony their only tools,
And soon the scope and numbers grew and grew.

Museums hold the counters and the stools. 
The halcyon grievance altered all the rules. 

Manuscripts is a portfolio of student and faculty artwork (paintings, drawings, ceramics, and photography), writing (prose, nonfiction, and poetry), and music. We aim to showcase our student and faculty talents via emails, our regularly updated website, and our printed booklet.
