News & Announcements

Meet the Authors: Emarie Randle and Robert Jacobus at the Carver Branch Library

The San Antonio Public Library honors diversity and provides opportunities for individuals and families to meet, exchange ideas, and participate in the lives of their community. In honor of Black History Month, the Carver Branch Library (3350 E. Commerce St., 78220) is hosting two local authors whose works explore the history and struggle, and celebrate the perseverance of the black community. On Saturday, February 13, authors Emarie Randle and Robert Jacobus will discuss their books, “The Josie Effect” and “Houston Cougars of the 1960’s,” respectively from 2 to 4 p.m. Black History Month 2016

“The Josie Effect” by Coach Emarie Randle is the story of a slave named Jessie who escapes the Mason Plantation with his family. Years later, his oldest child Josie emerges from death and gives everyone a reason to reflect, and to learn the plight of those slaves who inhabited the Mason Plantation. “Houston Cougars of the 1960’s” by Robert Jacobus features the first-person accounts of the players, the coaches, and others involved in the integration of collegiate athletics in Houston; telling the gripping story of the visionary coaches, the courageous athletes, and the committed supporters who blazed a trail not only for athletic success but also for racial equality in 1960s Houston.

Both author visits are sponsored by the Friends of the Carver Branch Library. For more information about the program, contact D.L. Grant at 210-207-9180 or tilford.grant@sanantonio.gov.
