“ALA Honors African Americans Who Fought Library Segregation”

A milestone in the history of libraries.

In an earlier post, the blog reported on an initiative by Shirley and Wayne Wiegand to ask the American Library Association to pass a resolution apologizing for the segregation of libraries at the summer conference.  The resolution passed unanimously:

The resolution includes a request to publicize the apology, so please distribute widely.

Best,
Brett
