Congratulations to Esmeralda Kale

In an email letter to Northwestern University’s Program of African Studies community last week, the Dean of Libraries announced that, “following a national search, Esmeralda Kale has accepted the position of George and Mary LeCron Foster Curator of the Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.” She continued:

In 2012-13 Esmeralda served as Chair of the Africana Librarians Council, a coordinate organization of the African Studies Association (ASA).  The ALC stands at the center of all major cooperative activities in African studies librarianship.  She is a member of the ALA International Relations Committee and has served on numerous other professional association committees.

Sincere congratulations from ALC colleagues and friends to Esmeralda for this special achievement!
