Join American Experience for a conversation commemorating the 1921 Tulsa massacre

American Experience presents a virtual conversation inspired, in part, by their documentary film Goin’ Back to T-Town. The conversation will explore the history of Tulsa's Greenwood community, the evolution of the narrative around the 1921 Tulsa Massacre, and the importance of capturing first-person accounts in telling the story of Greenwood's resilience and resurgence after the massacre. CLICK HERE to register. 

Featured guests include:

Carmen Fields - Screenwriter, Goin' Back to T-Town

Karlos Hill - Author of The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and Professor of African and African American Studies at the University of Oklahoma

The discussion will be moderated by Jessica Marie Johnson, Professor of History at Johns Hopkins University. The event will be live streamed on American Experience's YouTube and Facebook pages.
