The third session of the Global Summit on Repair, Reconstruction, and Restoration explores the role of history and history education in the process of repair. This learning opportunity breaks down into two parts.
- Pádraig Ó Tuama reads his poem, “[ t h e ] n o r t h [ e r n ] [ o f ] i r e l a n d”
- Karlos K. Hill gives a talk titled “Facing the Past, Forging a Shared Future: What role do history and history education play in the process of repair?” In 1921, Tulsa’s Greenwood District “Black Wall Street” was one of the most affluent black communities in America. However, on May 31 and June 1, 1921, a white mob attacked Greenwood and as a result nearly every significant structure within the community was destroyed and as many of three hundred people were killed. Nearly one hundred years later, the race massacre continues to reverberate. Dr. Karlos K. Hill’s discussion engages the history of the race massacre, the lessons the history offers, and the current-day legacies that must be confronted.
