Tracie Hall's audience

I'd just like to add to the posts of the Race & Place article that I think Tracie Hall's audience are librarians across the nation. She's a librarian herself and in the reading she states that "Libraries are not colorblind".

I think we sometimes get the perception that libraries are these great places where everyone is treated equally and has equal resources, but as her story of the Yellow Palace and White Cathedral show, this is not the case. I feel like she kind of wants to change the disparity that exists between libraries (some which are even in the same system), and this article is her way of showing that there is a real problem here, even in today's society.
