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.

  • Nine Negro students of Tougaloo Christian College, near Jackson, Mississipi were fined $100 each and given 30-day suspended sentences on March 29 for participating in Missippi's first "study-in" at the city's main public library which is for whites only.  The nine students had been arrested when they went to library shortly before noon on Monday, March 27, and refused to leave when ordered out by police officers" (75).  "At the city jail the students said they had been unable to obtain materials they needed in libraries open to Negroes and had therefore gone to the main library"(75).

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.

Southern African American Women and the Impact of Race, Gender, and Social Movements on... - 0 views

  •  
    This is an excellent article written by Rosalee A. Clawson and John A. Clark that describes the dramatic affects that the social movements, gender, and race of southern African American women had on the dynamic of the Democratic party. Once a nearly all-white, male institution, the Democratic party changed after the New Deal and even more change was brought to it by the events of the Civil Rights Era. The comparisons and connections that Clawson and Clark make are thorough and well written.
