GIRI: The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre in Global Perspective

This course explored inequalities through study of the history of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Through a series of remote and in-person lectures, undergraduate and graduate students engaged with instructors and guest speakers in discussions surrounding the events of the massacre, the global economic and racial context of early twentieth century racial violence, as well as the massacre’s influence on art, literature, social science research, and American culture. Students completed a semester-long research project of their choosing as part of the course.
