FreedomCon 2021: African Americans Fighting White Supremacy in the Wake of the Tulsa Massacre
June 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm$10
100 years ago, in the wake of the Tulsa Race Massacre, wealthy African Americans from Oklahoma joined Little Liberia, an economic opportunity to improve the lives of African Americans in the U.S. through economic advancement in Mexico. They also created a sister organization, the International Community Welfare League, that sought to combat White Supremacy, which they identified as a main culprit for racial inequality in the U.S and in the hemisphere.
This presentation will discuss the Tulsa Massacre, Little Liberia, the League, and consider the role of multiracial organizing with African Americans at the center as a means to combat White Supremacy. Laura Hooten, PhD, Assistant Professor of American History at The United States Military Academy at West Point, is the presenter.
