As of January 1, 2019, we will no longer send library notices via postal mail. (Mailed notices include alerts about holds, due dates, or fines.) This will save staff time and reduce waste - saving more than $18,000 annually. There are several free and easy ways to access your library account. Add an email address to receive email notices, check your account online, or call or visit your local library for assistance.

After many years of neglect and misplaced criticism by contemporary activists, historians and the media, Berg restores the NAACP to its rightful place at the heart of the civil rights movement. Where others have dismissed the NAACP's goals and methods as half-hearted, ineffective and irrelevant, Berg challenges the legalistic and bureaucratic image of the NAACP and reveals a resourceful, dynamic, and politically astute organization that did much to open up the electoral process to greater black participation. Readers interested in the African American freedom struggle will find a nuanced and judicious portrait of America's veteran civil rights organization.
