Chat in the Stacks: Honoring the Memory of Librarian Latanya Jenkins

We invite you to join us for this Chat in the Stacks program honoring the late Latanya Jenkins. Latanya was the Africology and African American studies and government information subject librarian here at Temple Libraries and participated on the Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of Faculty of Color and the International Programs committee. She was also a member of the Libraries’ Diversity and Inclusion committee.

Latanya was also an active member of ALA’s Government Documents Round Table, the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), and ACRL’s African American Studies Librarians Interest Group. She was a contributing author to Government Information Essentials, which was awarded the Margaret T. Lane & Virginia F. Saunders Memorial Research Award by the Government Documents Round Table of the American Library Association in 2019. In 2020, Latanya was named a Library Freedom Institute fellow.

The Libraries and Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of Faculty of Color have co-hosted the Chat in the Stacks series for the last 14 years.
