In celebration of National Library Week, please join us as Adrienne Teague G’18, an iSchool alumna, Beta Phi Mu member, and a public librarian in Tulsa, Oklahoma, discusses her library’s efforts to correct the historic misrepresentation of the 1921 Tulsa atrocities as a “race riot.” 

Teague is employed by the Tulsa City-County Library (TCCL) system as a teen librarian. She has been recognized and awarded for her community education programs centering on the Tulsa Race Massacre which occurred just blocks from where her current library stands.

Sponsored by the Syracuse University Libraries and the Pi Lambda Sigma chapter (at SU) of Beta Phi Mu, the international library and information science honorary society.
