Thanks for your coverage of the Created Equal series at the Oak Park Public Library — a February and March series of films and panel discussions that explore Oak Park's efforts to achieve long-term racial diversity [Our finest decade, LifeLines, Feb. 5].  

Looking at the schools, housing, our local laws and diverse families, those who attend the library series will be exposed to a rich and informative history. Additionally, our library has an extensive collection of films, printed materials and DVDs that include the "Legends of Our Time" series of panels and interviews of leading civil rights pioneers in Oak Park; the film, As Time Goes By, which documented 1974 events in Oak Park; a DVD that Doug Deuchler and I did in 2012; and many books, dissertations, and theses dealing with Oak Park during the early days of integration. 

This is an excellent opportunity for new and old residents to learn more about Oak Park from the 1960s to the present.
