The Rhode Island Black Heritage Society is pushing to make its extensive collection of rare books, manuscripts, and pamphlets more accessible to the public. The society has named entrepreneur Linda Cline and rare-book dealer Robert Dimmick as leaders of its library committee. They will lead efforts to catalog the collection and enhance public access to the collection by developing an online catalog. The Rhode Island Black Heritage Society was formed 37 years ago to preserve three centuries of African-American history in the state.
