University of Southern Mississippi Launches Digital Archive on Racially-Segregated Libraries

The University of Southern Mississippi has launched a new digital archive about racially-segregated libraries. “The archive is entitled ‘The Roots of Community: Segregated Carnegie Libraries as Spaces for Learning and Community-Making in Pre-Civil Rights America, 1900-65.’ The research includes information on 12 segregated Carnegie libraries (or ‘Carnegie Negro Libraries’ as they were called then), a group of public libraries that opened between 1900 and 1925.”
