Historically Speaking: In Remembrance of Greenwood
June 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0
Wednesday, June 2; 7 p.m.–8:30 p.m.
NMAAHC and Smithsonian magazine join forces in a virtual program to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre. A panel discussion explores the development of Tulsa’s Greenwood District, the events that led to its Black residents being the target of racially motivated violence, and the community’s resilience and regrowth. Panelists include Lisa Cook of Michigan State University, Victor Luckerson, Tulsa resident and a contributor to Smithsonian magazine’s April 2021 cover package devoted to the massacre, and Paul Gardullo, historian and curator of NMAAHC’s current exhibition on Tulsa. Michael Fletcher of ESPN’s Undefeated moderates. The event is free, but registration is required at https://nmaahc.si.edu/events/upcoming.
