New E-Resource: Black Freedom Struggle

NEW! We have added a great electronic resource to the library: Black Freedom Struggle.
It is a site focused on Black Freedom, featuring select primary source documents related to critical people and events in African American history. The intention is to support anyone interested in learning more about the foundation of ongoing racial injustice in the U.S. – and the fights against it.
By centering on the experiences and perspectives of African Americans, the hope is this collection imbues the study of Black history with a deeper understanding of the humanity of people who have pursued the quest for freedom, and the significance of movements like Black Lives Matter.
With your library card, you can access this resource from home here: https://maldenpubliclibrary.org/elibrary
