A Message from the Chair of the Department of African American Studies:
We shall not forget and will always remember as we intone the words of the Black National Anthem by J. Rosamond Johnson and James Weldon Johnson:
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us
Please join the Hammer Museum and the Department of African American Studies at UCLA as we commemorate the centennial anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre of May 31, 1921. For more information, please see the event details below.
