Smithsonian Transcription Center Collections Deep Dive: Transcribing the Legacy of the Tulsa Race Massacre

May 21, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join the Transcription Center team for our monthly Collections Deep Dive! With the help of content experts from around the Smithsonian, we’ll learn more about the collections and archives we’ve worked with in Transcription Center, as well as the history they represent.

This month, we’ll be joined by historian and curator Paul Gardullo from the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) to discuss the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre and the importance of transcribing related collections launched in the Transcription Center.

Paul directs the NMAAHC Center for the Study of Global Slavery, which co-convenes three international collaborative initiatives — the Slave Wrecks Project and the Global Curatorial Project, and the Slave Voyages consortium. Since 2007, Paul has been part of the core team focused on building the museum’s foundational collections and conceiving and crafting its inaugural exhibitions. He curated the inaugural exhibition “The Power of Place” that contains the Museum’s exhibition on the Tulsa Race Massacre. He is project director for a new exhibition entitled “Make Good the Promises: Reconstruction and its Legacies” and is co-editor of the companion volume that open to celebrate the Museum’s 5th anniversary in 2021.

This webinar will be uploaded and captioned on our YouTube channel following the event. Have questions, comments, or discoveries to share before or after the webinar? Reach out on Twitter @transcribeSI or email our team directly at transcribe@si.edu.
