May 26-29, 2021 | 1:30 - 3 p.m.

Born and raised in Nashville Tennessee, Harvard graduate Caroline Randall Williams is an award-winning poet, young adult novelist, and cookbook author as well as an activist, public intellectual, performance artist, and scholar. She joined the faculty of Vanderbilt University in the Fall of 2019 as a Writer-in-Residence in Medicine, Health, and Society while she continues to work and speak to the places where art, business, and scholarship intersect, moving people closer to their best lives and corporations closer to their ideal identities. At this year's Symposium, Ms. Randall Williams will participate in a joint luncheon panel discussion that illuminates how important historical events tie into the history of places we live (with Greenwood and the Race Massacre as local models). Ms. Williams will focus on how past and current narratives help shape our collective and individual memories for purposes of preserving, honoring, and creating cultural histories, and how activism performance art, monuments, and place intersect in both preserving the past and carving a path for the future.

THE CENTENNIAL OF THE TULSA RACE MASSACRE AND BEYOND

May 26-29, 2021 | 1:30 - 3 p.m.

Samuel Sinyangwe is a policy analyst and data scientist who works with communities of color to fight systemic racism through cutting-edge policies and strategies. Mr. Sinyangwe has supported movement activists across the country to collect and use data as a tool for fighting police violence through Mapping Police Violence and to launch Campaign Zero, a comprehensive platform to end police violence. At this year's Symposium, Mr. Sinyangwe will provide perspective on how policy and data can provide a lens into how looking back at historical events can shape the work needed to improve the future. Specifically, Mr. Sinyangwe will illuminate how local and national data can inform how looking back at the vents of the Tulsa 1921 Race Massacre should shape how we move beyond 2021 and consider the next 100 years in Tulsa. This year, you will have the opportunity to attend the Symposium virtually or limited, in-person attendance. Be sure to register now and take advantage of the Early Bird Registration which will end on April 20, 2021.
