50 Years of Civil Rights through the Lens of Juvenile Literature

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Dare to imagine: Civil Rights as shown through the lens of Children’s Literature. For the past 15 years, the University of Tennessee at Martin has held a Civil Rights Conference. This past year, the opportunity presented itself for the library, as an academic institution, to give a presentation at the conference. Our topic was 50 years of Juvenile Literature with an emphasis on African American civil rights and we prepared for the presentation by creating a bibliography of works we felt best exemplified our topic. We will share with you our process in selecting materials for inclusion in the presentation. Additionally, we will review the unique collection development strategies we implemented to evaluate and expand an important part of our collection.
