Acknowledgments I wish to acknowledge and express my deep gratitude to my partners over the years in providing library programming that promoted African Ameri- can writers. Thank you to Marianna Brough, who was the coordinator of the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center (NMBCC) Library while I served as the head of the NMBCC Library at Indiana University. Thank you to the members of the Springfield African American Read-In Committee for the many years that we worked together in bringing programs that celebrated African American authors in Springfield: Lola Butcher, Cheryl Clay, Heather Cottle, Nora England, Charlotte Hardin, Martha Love, Gwendolyn Marshall, Eva Pelkey, and Rosalyn Thomas.
