WLT supports the three-day symposium “Reflecting on the Past, Facing the Future” (April 8-10) in Norman and Tulsa, which commemorates the centenary of the Tulsa Race Massacre.
Two-year-old American poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith will give the keynote speech, historians Scott Ellsworth and Hannibal B. Johnson will give plenary lectures and the I dream about Greenwood Dance will also have its premiere this week. To register for the free and publicly available symposium, visit ou.edu/tulsa1921. The symposium culminates in a year-long series of more than two dozen courses, special projects and events dedicated to the centennial at OU’s three locations in Norman, Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Major funding for the symposium came from Oklahoma Humanities, the Norman Arts Council, and the OU Vice President for Research and Partnerships
