Resources regarding The Speaker
om the OIF Blog:
"The ALA Library has very helpfully put together a pathfinder of resources relevant to the ongoing discussion around “Speaking About ‘The Speaker,’” the upcoming IFC/AAP program atALA Annual Conference.
Included in the pathfinder: the link to the filmand the accompanying discussion guide, a film chronology, a bibliography of articles about the film and the controversy surrounding it, uploads of several historical American Librariesmagazine articles (reprinted with permission ofAL magazine), and links to recent articles about the upcoming program.
A key document is the full 1978 statement from 25 ALA members, endorsed by the Black Caucus of the ALA, presented at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in opposition to the film and ALA’s sponsorship of it.
This pathfinder is a work in progress: if you have other articles or links you would like included in the finders guide, please contact Valerie Hawkins at firstname.lastname@example.org."
