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.

Saint Peter Claver Catholic Church - 0 views

  •  
    This website gives information on one of the churches in my group project. The church was built for the black catholics in Lexington due to segregation in the two other catholic churches. The website offers the history of the church, which also had a school, even though most of the students were not catholic. Despite the racial segregation between the catholic churches in Lexington, St. Peter Claver did not recieve a black preist until the year 2000.

White women as Postmodern Vehicle of Black Oppression - 1 views

  •  
    An interesting journal article written by Ronald E. Hall describing the way in which white women have indirectly become a form of oppression to African Americans. Hall insists that the feminist movement happened at such an inoppurtune time that because it invariably coincided with the civil rights movement, issues of civil rigjts that were attempting to be addressed were pushed to the wayside in favor of addressing the concerns of white women and the feminist movement. It is an interesting perspective on both accounts and deserves a look.
