Mark Juneteenth at Kelvin Smith Library

Members of the Case Western Reserve University can tap into Kelvin Smith Library’s resources to commemorate Juneteenth. There will be a book pop up on the first floor of the library with librarian-selected graphic novels, memoirs and histories that highlight African American identity, history and voices. After exploring the selections, if you’d see something you like, you can bring it to the Service Center Desk to borrow and take home.

Kelvin Smith Library’s staff also has created a Juneteenth Research Guide with videos, primary source databases and recommended reading. The resources provided in this guide are meant to raise awareness and highlight local events celebrating freedom for all people.

Additionally, members of the university community can use Digital Case to view the African American Scholars at Case collection. The project seeks to preserve and make widely available information about the contributions of African Americans to the university and to both the local and global communities.
