The Black Child, the World of Sports, and the Public Library: A Personal Observation.
Williams, Benjamin R.
This paper argues that the mass media causes black youths to indulge in the myth that success in school athletics is the key to fame and financial security, and that the public library offers blacks many resources which can be used to supplement their education. It is also held that libraries have historically been inhospitable to blacks and that public library services must be readjusted to meet the needs of minorities. Seven references are cited. (FM)
