The Future of Tulsa’s Past: The Centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre and Beyond

Hosted By: YIVO

YIVO was invited to participate in the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation’s 12th Annual Reconciliation in America National Symposium, “The Future of Tulsa’s Past: The Centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre and Beyond.” This centennial commemoration assembles celebrated authors, activists, educators, and journalists to discuss the story of the Tulsa Race Massacre and how we can work toward the intentional journey of reconciliation.

YIVO’s contribution to this four day (May 26-May 29) symposium is a panel on Friday, May 28, 2:30pm CDT (3:30pm ET) designed in collaboration with In Geveb: A Journal of Yiddish Studies. The panel will present research on contemporaneous Yiddish language newspaper articles and other archival sources which reflect on the Tulsa race massacre as well as on racially motivated violence that erupted in America in the early twentieth century more broadly.
