Hill Book Club which meets bi-monthly online. The book club is named in honor of Oliver W. Hill (1907–2007), a Richmond African American attorney and civil rights activist. His efforts, along with others’, resulted in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling that racial segregation in public education was unconstitutional. The Oliver W. Hill Book Club invites readers to explore various books dealing with the law, civil rights, and social justice in America. Meldon also chairs the Get Lit Advisory Committee which supports the RPL Get Lit Reading Initiatives including the Black Male Emergent Readers (BMER) program, the Lit Chicks Read Book Clubs, the Ready Readers @Hull Street Library for K-5 students, and Real Men Read speakers bureau.
