From Library Journal
This fine collection of 15 essays provides original insights into the use of books and libraries by African Americans since the 19th century. Written by librarians, scholars, and activists, seven chapters first appeared as part of the Library History Round Table's (LHRT) program at the 1994 American Library Association annual conference. Particularly good are the two sections by Edward G. Holly and Charles Churchwell describing the integration of the University of Houston's library staff in 1967. Also, Donald G. Davis and Cheryl Knott Malone's study of libraries' role in the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer project and Marilyn H. Pettit's section on New York City Sunday school libraries in the 19th century are excellent. Complementing the Handbook of Black Librarianship (1977) and In Our Own Voices: The Changing Face of Librarianship (Scarecrow, 1996), this is highly recommended to all librarians interested in both library and African American history.?Stephen L.
