9780810828308: The Black Librarian in America Revisited

This sequel to The Black Librarian in America (Scarecrow, 1970) contains an array of contributors representing a new generation of African American librarians, addressing the same perplexing problems that their predecessors examined. This volume is being issued at a time when there is a great concern about cultural diversity in the country. Cultural diversity is laudable, but the pervasive problem in the country is institutional racism. All of the contributors aggree that it is racism that should be eradicated if a truly multicultural society that represents cultural diversity is to develop.

A wide range of topics are explored. In addition, a profile of Dorothy Porter Wesley, one of the pioneer African American librarians; librarians and archivists as writers, and a provocative essay by Congresswoman Major R. Owens on "The Specter of Racism in an Age of Cultural Diversity: The New Paradigm for African American Librarians." Among the contributors are Carolyn O. Frost, Herman L. Totten, Carla Hayden, Charles M. Brown, Alexander Boyd, Jesse Carney Smith, James F Williams,II, Lou Helen Saunders, Ina A. Brown, Vivian Davidson Hewitt, Monteria Hightower, Ella Gaines Yates, and Ann Allen Shockley.

Especially designed for professional librarians, library school students, and other information professionals, this volume would be a useful addition to African American collections and other scholarly collections dealing with American society. A copious index that is cross referenced makes it very useful as a reference tool.

About the Author:

E.J. Josey has earned degrees from Howard University, Columbia University, and the State University of New York at Albany. In addition, he holds honorary doctorate degrees from Shaw University, the Univ. of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and North Carolina Central University. He is Professor, School of Library and Informational Science, Univ. of Pittsburgh. Among his published books are What Black Librarians are Saying: New Dimensions for Academic Library Service, Libraries in the Political Process, and Libraries, Coalitions, and the Public Good. Past President of the ALA, he is also known as an uncompromising opponent of racial discrimination and is the founder of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association.

From Library Journal:

In 1970, The Black Librarian in America (Professional Reading, LJ 3/15/71) was published. Now, more than 20 years later, this "revisit" by 30 African American librarians, of whom only 11 were contributors to the original work, provide a wealth of historical and biographical information for the library and information science profession. This is not just another book about librarians, about African Americans, or about the specter of racism that still hovers over American society despite claims of multiculturalism. It is instead a thoughtful look at how black librarians have achieved personal and professional goals in spite of overwhelming obstacles. It is about incidents in library history that affect the entire profession. Divided into five sections with an introduction by E.J. Josey, this generous volume represents voices from library education, public libraries, academic libraries, special libraries and information centers, and state libraries. Contributors include such notables as Herman Totten ("The Role of African Americans in the Accreditation Process of the American Library Association's Committee on Accreditation"), Carla Hayden ("New Approaches to Black Recruitment"), Ann Allen Schockley ("Librarians, Archivists, and Writers: A Personal Perspective"), Ella Gaines Yates ("Reflections of a Former State Librarian," and Mary Lenox ("Reflections of a Dean"). The essays cover a wide range of topics, from Congressman Major R. Owens's suggestions for a new paradigm for African American librarians to a very useful article on the information needs of blacks in the prison system. While many of the essays are biographical in nature, it must be remembered that these were written by individuals who have often made significant impact on the profession, on the American Library Association, on library education, and other areas. These biographies in most cases will not be found in other sources. Whether or not a library has the original edition, this collection of poignant and hopeful words of encouragement must be included in all general and library science collections.
