Please join us for a screening and discussion of /Hate Crimes in the 
Heartland/ with Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker *Rachel Lyon* 
and *Professor Charles J. Ogletree, Jr**.*

The number of hate crimes in the United States has nearly doubled in the 
past decade. /Hate Crimes in the Heartland/ is a compelling story of 
hatred and hope, as told through the lens of one city, Tulsa, Oklahoma. 
Home to the most destructive race riot in American history, Tulsa 
continues to present a vivid portrait of America's simmering racial 
divisions today. /Hate Crimes in the Heartland/ opens with the Good 
Friday murders of 2012 and extends back in time to the 1921 Tulsa Race 
Riot and the utter devastation of America's "Black Wall Street." 
/Heartland/ is a portrait filled with compelling characters, powerful 
stories, remarkable archival imagery, and dramatic first-person 
testimony. /Heartland/ reveals the open wounds of this near epidemic, 
while revealing inspiring efforts toward hope and reconciliation.
