The Kelvin Smith Library was selected for the ALA IRRT-ICC 2020 Best Practices from World Libraries Photo Gallery.  The “Best Practices from World Libraries” photo gallery presents a selection of photographs from around the world, which feature library projects and programs that best demonstrate this year’s ALA theme: the Value of Libraries in Promoting Social Justice and Inclusion. This collection of photographs has been curated by the International Relations Round Table (IRRT) International Connections Committee. See the full photo gallery at https://sites.google.com/view/icc-programs/2020-photo-gallery. See the Kelvin Smith Library’s “Voices A Century Apart” entry at https://sites.google.com/view/icc-programs/2020-photo-gallery#h.p_dwGgRQpkkBDm. The project at Kelvin Smith Library represents the century separating (and uniting) two men fighting for civil and human rights as outlined in both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution. This modernized conversation between Frederick Douglass and Martin Luther King, Jr., portrayed by actors, serves to deliver historical impact through their speeches examining the city’s racial issues.
