Books on trial : red scare in the Heartland by Shirley A Wiegand( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a raid on the Progressive Bookstore of Oklahoma City in 1940, local officials seized thousands of books and pamphlets and arrested twenty customers and proprietors, several of them members of the Communist Party. All were detained incommunicado and many were held for months on unreasonably high bail. Four were tried and convicted for violating Oklahoma's 'criminal syndicalism' law and sentenced to ten years in prison. The defendants' convictions and sentences caused a nationwide furor and were ultimately overturned on appeal after protests from labor unions, churches, publishers, academics, librarians, the American Civil Liberties Union, members of the literary world, and prominent individuals ranging from Woody Guthrie to Eleanor Roosevelt." "Shirley A. Wiegand and Wayne A. Wiegand share the story of this important case for the first time, drawing on recently discovered trial transcripts, interviews with witnesses and those arrested, documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and other primary sources."--Jacket
The desegregation of public libraries in the Jim Crow South : civil rights and local activism by Wayne A Wiegand( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wayne A. and Shirley A. Wiegand tell the comprehensive story of the integration of southern public libraries. As in other efforts to integrate civic institutions in the 1950s and 1960s, the determination of local activists won the battle against segregation in libraries. In particular, the willingness of young black community members to take part in organized protests and direct actions ensured that local libraries would become genuinely free to all citizens."--

Reality Bites : the Collision of Rhetoric, Rights and Reality and the Library Bill of Rights by Shirley A Wiegand( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This Articles That The Library profession examine the Library Bill of Rights and remove it those statements which do not represent current legal principles. Library professionals and their patrons must have available a clear statement of those First Amendments principles which received a legal support. A carefully edited document would serve as that statement. The material culled from the Library Bill of Rights may contribute to the creation of second document which would represent the profession's apirational creed. This creed, albeit lacking in legal support, might provide inspirational library professionals and would provide with them with a standard which goes beyond First Amendment mandate. It might be incorporated into the employment contract for library professionals, but would represent the current state of legal principles. This proposal separates rhetoric from rights to produce a set principles which reflect reality
