Founded in 2005, the Black Caucus of the American Association of Law Libraries (BCAALL) enhances the professional experiences of African American law librarians. The purpose of the Black Caucus is to promote the professional development, recruitment, and social interests of black law librarians.
BCAALL members are librarians from a host of different types of law libraries. BCAALL is an inclusive organization. Membership is not denied to anyone on account of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability or sexual orientation.
The Black Caucus provides members with many opportunities to work together and serve the organization through its various committees, which include: the Nominations Committee, the Community Service Committee, the Program Committee and the Bylaws Committee.
Giving back is an essential part of BCAALL's endeavors. Each year, BCAALL hosts a fundraising dinner to support AALL's George A. Strait Minority Scholarship. BCAALL also sponsors annual service projects that benefit the host city of AALL's Annual Meeting.
If you are interested in issues concerning black law librarians, we encourage you to join BCAALL. Becoming a member is a great way to meet and network with other law librarians, give back to the profession and serve the community.
