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.
