Black History Month 2009 coincided with the 50th anniversary of school desegregation in the Norfolk Public Schools.
Our exhibit, SCHOOL DESEGREGATION IN NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, featured materials from the library's Special Collections relating to school desegregation in Norfolk, Virginia. All exhibit materials are contained in a digital collection.
For more information about school desegregation in Norfolk, Virginia and the collections in the ODU Libraries, a slideshow was created to accompany the exhibit. Below is the pdf file of that slideshow.
