Writing History Uncovering Truths with Jewell Parker Rhodes

April 6, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

As a bestselling and award-winning author and educator, Jewell Parker Rhodes has dedicated her life’s work to uncovering suppressed stories.

In this talk, she shares her personal experience researching and publishing the first novel to depict the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and delves into the reasons why it’s taken our society so long for these important narratives to come to the forefront. By bringing history to light through fiction, she uncovers the truth in the pursuit of making the future brighter.
