Tulsa Race Massacre Presentation
By Dr. Scott Ellsworth
Tuesday, January 26, 2021
To commemorate the centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre, we have commissioned three new pieces of chamber music by Black composers. To complement our recent commissions, and as part of our effort to learn more about the Massacre, we invite you to join us for a free 30-minute presentation by Dr. Scott Ellsworth. Dr. Ellsworth is the author of Death in a Promised Land, the first-ever comprehensive history of the horrific 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. This award-winning author is also helping to lead the ongoing effort to uncover the unmarked graves of massacre victims. His forthcoming book, The Ground Breaking: An American City and Its Search for Justice, will be released in May 2021. He teaches courses on African American history, Southern literature, race and sports, and crime and justice in contemporary U.S. society at the University of Michigan. More information on Dr. Ellsworth can be found here:
We are excited to invite our circle of supporters to be a part of this free presentation on Tuesday, January 26 at 5:15 p.m. A brief question and answer period will follow the presentation. Please use the following link to log-on to the presentation.
