“Forgotten Heroes in Civil Rights History”

If you are interested in the history of libraries, public libraries as public spaces, or in social justice issues, check out Dr. Wayne Wiegand’s article in the current issue of American Libraries (see pp. 32-7) about the desegregation of public libraries in the South.  The article, entitled “Forgotten Heroes in Civil Rights History”, gives us a peek at Dr. Wiegand’s forthcoming book (with Shirley A. Wiegand), Open These Hallowed Doors, which the LSU Press will publish in the spring of 2018.
