Join us the 12th Annual Reconciliation in America National Symposium, “The Future of Tulsa’s Past: The Centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre and Beyond.” This year, we commemorate the centennial of the 1921 Race Massacre and have assembled 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.
By convening global scholars and practitioners, the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation hopes to promote a dialogue among those who work to bridge societal divides.
