Description

Segregation policies led to attempts by the African-American community to ensure that institutions such as libraries were created for their use, and the African-American library movement was particularly successful in Greenville. This is the interior of a library supported by African-American community organizations such as the Esquire Club. Photograph by James Huntington.
