New Documentary on the Untold Story of Black Librarians


The new documentary Are You a Librarian: The Untold Story of Black Librarians aims to show a new, pioneering perspective on Black librarians, and the great influence they’ve wielded, which reached outside of libraries and into moments like the Civil Rights Movement.

Rodney E. Freeman Jr. is the executive producer of the documentary, and a large part of the force propelling the production of the documentary. As a Black librarian, he knows firsthand the vital role Black librarians have played, saying “Being a black librarian means that you have an additional responsibility to make sure that everyone is truly represented in the library.” 

The documentary is expected early 2025.
