gal-dem Presents: Reclaimed & Rewritten.
For the better part of the last century, the story of Oklahoma’s Tulsa massacre has been forcibly relegated to the shadows of history. However, a renewed focus in digging up the past – particularly when it pertains to historic wrongs perpetrated against Black people – has recently brought the horrific tale back into the spotlight.
Recentering the conversation, we will uncover the community behind the headlines, Deep Greenwood. We’ll explore what actually happened during the state supported massacre, the laws that were enacted following it and the echoes that remain today, and how these can help us to understand a terrifying legacy of anti-black racism that echoes between the U.K. and the U.S.
Hosted by critic and writer Clarkisha Kent, we ask the question - Black Wall Street, myth or reality?
