Hidden Figures in American Library History–New Orleans Program

Wonderful news–the New Orleans Public Library will be hosting, Hidden Figures in American Library History:  The Desegregation of Public Libraries in the Jim Crow South, on June 24, 2018, 2-4 p.m.

The panel of presenters features Drs. Wayne and Shirley Wiegand, who will discuss their new book The Desegregation of Public Libraries in the Jim Crow South: Civil Rights and Local Activism (LSU Press, 2018), as well as four “hidden figures” who protested the segregation of public libraries all over the Deep South.

This program will be a milestone event in the historiography of both libraries and civil rights!  Hope everyone can attend.

Please see the Hidden Figures flier for more details…and please circulate the flier widely!

Best,

Brett
