Biography (note)
  • The Schomburg Center Scrapbooks are a collection of 296 volumes assembled by library staff between the 1920s and 1960s, to supplement the collection of black history resources that would later form the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. The staff were strategic in their clipping, choosing to highlight black voices and topics of particular interest to the African American community. The scrapbooks are organized by topic and consist primarily of newspaper clippings, unless otherwise noted.
Provenance (note)
  • The Schomburg scrapbooks may have grown out of the clipping file, when librarian Catherine Latimer assigned WPA workers to clip African American and mainstream newspapers and assemble them into scrapbooks. Two or three scrapbooks on Marcus Garvey went missing around 1960.

Summary
This scrapbook (1954-1963) is about the process of desegregating New Orleans, Louisiana public schools and contains clippings from a variety of newspapers. More specifically, this scrapbook covers several attempts made by local government to avoid desegregation after the federal government required the New Orleans school board to come up with an actionable plan for school desegregation. Also covered are protests, school boycotts, and desegregation of New Orleans Catholic schools. Publications include Christian Science Monitor (Boston), New York Post, and New York Times. Not all clippings include date and source information.
