americanwiki / Segregated Libraries - 0 views

  • Carnegie and Bertram never insisted on desegregated libraries or that communities accept and maintain separate branches for blacks, but they did attempt to make communities clearly set their own policies, so they could act accordingly"(Carnegie 36).  "Carnegie and Betram tried to compute grant amounts according to the number of people permitted to use them"(Carnegie 32).  This created a complication in southern communities where libraries were segregated.  If the number of likely library users included blacks in the community, Carnegie wanted the assurance that blacks would be allowed to use the library.
  • At the ALA midwinter meeting of 1961 an amendment was made to the library bill of rights.  "The right of an individual to the use of a library should not be denied or abridged because of his race, religion national origins, or political views."  Although the ALA officially supported integration, many felt the ALA was too complicit in library segregation. 
  • Public libraries were sometimes battleground sites in the civil rights movement.

Andrew Carnegie and his Library Legacy | library - 0 views

  • Many southerners did not believe that African Americans should have been allowed to know how to read. When dealing with the racism of southern America and the required segregation, Andrew Carnegie went as far as to build separate Carnegie libraries specifically for African Americans.
  •  
    After listening to an interview with Hopkinsville native, Odessa Chestine, who said the Carnegie library in Hopkinsville was segregated causing her family to have to buy books instead of being able to check them out from the library, I decided to look further to find if all Carnegie libraries were segregated.
