Library Needs To Do More To Identify African-American History Resources

I’m writing this letter to you in reference to the Elizabeth Public Library. I am doing research for a book on African-American History. I visited the library on Friday, Sept. 24 and was told that there was no special section on African-American History.

According to the Amistad Commission, a law passed in 2002 requires all New Jersey public schools to include African-American History in their curriculums. Because of that law, our children will rely on the library to do their research. Regardless of computers, we still need the library.
