*Pre-Conference is CONFIRMED* Library spaces are conducive places to tell the stories of the communities which they serve, however there is a risk of African Americans being marginalized in varying degrees. Although generally not intentional or malicious, the end result is a library devoid of many of the important resources needed to successfully research African American Ancestors in North Carolina and beyond. Guiding librarians to both online and offline resources is one part of a two-pronged approach in this workshop which will provide a number of foundational reference materials on location as well as recommendations for further resources for collection development. A discussion of strategies and sharing of tips will constitute the second pillar of the workshop, with the goal of sharing many of the nuances associated with African American research. The workshop facilitators will bring a combined 45+ years of research experience and/or familiarity with the subject matter.
