One Book, One Tulsa by Cindy Hulsey

In The Warmth of Other Suns, Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson tackles a long and sweeping chapter in American history and puts a human face on it by telling the story in the voices of three African Americans who were part of The Great Migration. From 1915 to 1970 nearly six million black people left the American South for cities in the North and West in pursuit of a better life.

On the afternoon of February 24, Library Commissioners, County Commissioners, Tulsa Library Trust members, donors and friends gathered to say goodbye to the last remaining sign of the old Central Library.  Within seconds after the signal was given by Library CEO Gary Shaffer, the Central Library sign at the corner of 5th Street and Denver was brought down.  See the complete demolition in the attached video.
