Monday, January 24, 2022 12pm to 1pm

Free Event Add to calendar

The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 was a major event in United States history, yet it went virtually unknown, unremarked, and untaught for 75 years. Professor Eric J. Miller has litigated two lawsuits seeking reparations for the Massacre, and will discuss the important lessons that the Massacre can teach contemporary reparations movements at the city, state, and national levels. The work of erasing racial violence and Black political movements from the national consciousness is once again a feature of our politics, in part as a response to the success of these movements nationwide. Remembering not only the victims, but identifying and holding accountable the wrongdoers remains an important aspect of reparations, and our national dialogue on race.
