Chris Barbuschak and Suzanne LaPierre, authors of "Desegregation in Northern Virginia Libraries,"  will discuss barriers imposed on Black residents and efforts to achieve more equitable access to library services in our area.

This program is presented in partnership with the Office of 55+ Programs at the Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation.
