Every Race, Every Month
Date: Wednesday September 30, 2020
Time: 2 – 3 p.m. EST
We can all acknowledge and recognize the critical need for access to library and information resources, services, and technologies by all people, especially those in the BIPOC community. Underrepresented patrons may experience issues which limit their full, beneficial use of the library. Some of these issues may stem from a lack of full representation in important aspects of library programming. Our panelists will discuss how better to include EDI in library programming.
Rose Dawson, Executive Director of Alexandria Library
Novella Ford, Associate Director of Public Programs and Exhibitions at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
Shakira Smalls, Executive Director of Langston Hughes Community Library and Cultural Center
Kelly Yim, President of PLS
