From the Washington Times:
The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library will mount an exhibit of art works by local black artists and devote an entire division to black history, art and culture starting Monday.
Librarians are still upset that the tradition of using the entire library to celebrate National Black History Month, which begins today, was not followed this year. \"We are trying to make the best of what we have, but it is not what we really wanted,\" said Alice Robinson, head of the library\'s black studies division, who has worked at the library for 31 years . . .
[Librarians] said [the exhibit coordinator] informed them that the library\'s policy is not to give special consideration to race in scheduling exhibits, sparking a tense situation between the executive staff and black librarians . . .
