Marabou Reads About: Dorothy Porter Who Decolonized the Library Catalogue at Howard University

Marabou came to the Smithsonian Magazine article, “Remembering the Howard University Librarian Who Decolonized the Way Books Were Catalogued” via the Instagram post (below) from The Conscious Kid. Per their website, “The Conscious Kid is an education, research and policy organization dedicated to reducing bias and promoting positive identity development in youth.”

Marabou shares this article with you because it explains how colonial structures, systems, and thinking are so deeply imbedded that their affects are always felt, but seldom seen.
