Localist Shortcode

This shortcode ties into events.wfu.edu our localist events website and displays events based on the attributes on the shortcode. Many of our websites use this plugin to display events related to the content of that website. We also offer our University Events block for a more integrated look and feel.

UPDATE: Looks like the natural display for each of these seems off in our new theme. We should check to make sure all the css is being loaded for these and that there isn’t any non-secure styles/scripts. Also images are broken in the API shortcode so we probably need to ensure we are using https for these.

Shortcode: Localist Widget

The Localist widget shortcode ties into the basic widget building functionality localist provides. It comes wrapped with html and has very little ability to change the html structure.

Shortcode

[ wfu_localist_widget num=10 days=30 ]

Shortcode: Localist API

The Localist API shortcode has more parameters and can return a more custom set of events returned in json format allowing the html display of the events to be controlled on our end.

Shortcode

[ wfu_localist_api pp=10 days=30 ] or [ wfu_localist_api num=10 days=30 ]

Exhibit: Poets and Publishers of the Black Arts Movement

The 1960s and 70s saw a flowering of African-American poetry unprecedented in American literary history. The poets of the Black Arts Movement fused artistic experimentation with political engagement, giving voice to the complexities of the Black experience in the years immediately following the civil rights movement. Unlike previous generations of African-American poets, many of these writers were able to make their work available to the public through Black-owned and operated presses, thus freeing themselves from the editorial control of the white literary establishment. Black publishing outlets such as Dudley Randall’s Broadside Press, Haki Madhubuti’s Third World Press, and many others, allowed for a diversity of voices within the African-American community while also linking individual poets to a larger cultural enterprise.

This exhibit draws on ZSR Special Collections’ extensive holdings to highlight the achievements of both the poets and the people who published them during these pivotal decades in American history.
