• 50th Anniversary Program at CLA Conference

    The California Librarians Black Caucus celebrates 50 years of leadership in the library and information science profession, and providing services to communities of African descent and other peoples in the state of California. In recognition of this achievement, this organization was honored with a citation of acknowledgement presented at the 2022 annual conference of the California Library Association

Who We Are

The California Librarians Black Caucus is a statewide organization, established in 1972, to eradicate inequities facing African Americans in the library workplace.

CLBC is an independent organization, not affiliated directly with the American Library Association or the California Library Association. While our members may be affiliated with other professional organizations, our focus is expanding local interests in our profession and expanding opportunities to enhance our professional image.

In January 2014, we voted to reestablish our affiliate status with the Black Caucus of the American Library Association.
