Abstract

Using Critical Race Theory (CRT) as an analytical framework, this chapter explores the development of libraries funded by Andrew Carnegie and later the Carnegie Corporation on the campuses of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). With particular emphasis on CRT's interest convergence tenet, the chapter illuminates both the motivations of these corporate philanthropies and the experiences of African Americans who negotiated with them to obtain library buildings for their campuses.
