ILA Conference Bus Tour
The Cultural and Racial Diversity Committee sponsored a bus tour to three libraries in the Chicago area that serve underrepresented groups. This picture is of a sculpture by Richard Hunt called Jacob's Ladder. It is named from the story in the Bible and it is a permanent sculpture in the Vivian G. Harsh Research Collection in the Woodson Regional Library of the Chicago Public Library. Our hosts at the Woodson Library told the group that the library has the second largest African American collection in the world.
