Season 3: HBCU Library Alliance Tour
Buckle up for a college tour road trip! Season 3 spotlights people and collections at six HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) libraries and shares stories about these cornerstones of culture and historical knowledge.
We travel from the inner harbor of Baltimore, Maryland, to the “Queen City” of Charlotte, North Carolina; from the champion trees of Columbia, South Carolina, to the magnolias of Lorman, Mississippi; and from the bayous of New Orleans, Louisiana to the rolling hills of Nashville, Tennessee. We consider the impact of HBCU library collections on society both locally and abroad. How do we tell the story of Black history from the archives? What are the roles of cultural heritage institutions in the preservation of Black culture? What are the challenges these institutions face? And where do we go from here?
