This talk recounts a major turning point in U.S. library history: the mid-20th-century integration of southern public libraries, including that of Dallas. Leading library historian Wayne Wiegand will discuss not just this historic development but also the essential role played by an array of very young community activists, until now largely “hidden figures” in the national narrative of the civil rights movement.
