Abstract: The recruitment of members of minority groups into the library profession has been, since the 1960s, a major concern of the library education community. Today, every accredited library school is making efforts to recruit black librarians for admission to its program, but the great majority of black librarians are still trained by two historically black institutions, Atlanta University and North Carolina Central.
