Christa Hardy defends her dissertation

I was excited to read today about the upcoming, December 3, 2007 dissertation defense by Christa Hardy, a second-generation librarian from Tuskegee, AL, at theUniversity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Graduate School of Library and Information Science. According to the university's website:
Christa Hardy will defend her proposal, "Piecin' a Quilt: Jessie Carney Smith and African American Women's History." A copy of the proposal is available in 112 LIS Building. All those interested are welcome to attend. The committee includes Linda Smith, Christine Jenkins, Erik McDuffie (African American Studies/Gender & Women's Studies/History), and Karla Moller (Curriculum & Instruction)
Jessie Carney Smith was also an librarian and recorder of black women's history. Go Christa!
