Recent Shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha

The Evanston Public Library is deeply shocked and saddened by the recent shooting of Jacob Blake, Jr., in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  The Blake family has deep ties to the city of Evanston, and has contributed to the advancement of civil rights, both here and elsewhere.  Our thoughts are with the entire Blake family, and we hope for the recovery of Mr. Blake, as well as for justice for him and his family.  We remain committed to doing our part to advance racial equity and justice in our community, our state, and our nation.
