SCLA Annual Conference Proceeding


Sponsored by the Roundtable for African American Concerns (RAAC) of the South Carolina Library Association (SCLA), this session featured African American representation from various levels of Charleston County Public Library management. Each panelist discussed their experiences of racial inequity (Individual, Institutional, and Structural), finding and being advocates, coping and self-care methods, and positive outcomes. Panelists also offered strategies and solutions for handling inequity. The article discusses what was the catalyst leading to the deliberate, purposeful efforts of Charleston County Public Library to include Equity as one of the core principles in its Strategic Vision for 2021-2024.
