Hope & Healing: Black, White, and Native American
June 1-3, 2011
Hyatt Regency, Tulsa
The John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation is presenting its 2nd annual Reconciliation in America symposium. The 2011 symposium will explore academic research and community projects that address the general theme of reconciliation in America, broadening this year's scope of the discussion of reconciliation beyond black and white. Oklahoma, once "Indian Territory", has a rich history attributable, primarily, to the interrelationships between and among Native Americans, African-Americans, and European Americans. This unique Oklahoma history will provide a backdrop for the exploration of how these groups have interacted in America throughout the centuries.
Full symposium attendance requires a registration fee, however there will be two events that are free and open to the public: the Town Hall and Keynote Address on June 2nd.
