About this item

Children’s and youth librarians working around the country unite with scholars in library science, education, and literacy studies to reflect on the educational needs of African American youth and report on successful library literacy programs serving them. The book opens with an essay on literacy education for African American youth as a social justice issue for librarians. Part 1, devoted to research, highlights theoretical frameworks and models that will help school and public librarians transform their services and programs, and help collections to respond to the strengths and needs of black youth. Some subjects broached in this section include culturally relevant pedagogy and the black cultural ethos, ethnic and racial development in African American youth, and characteristics of effective library services for African American youth. Part 2, on practice, profiles successful programs, such as the Pearl Bailey Library Youth Programs, outreach and community partnership at Stanford L. Warren Library, and the use of I-LEARN with K-2 students. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
