Event Details: 

"My biggest job now is making white people understand that black history is white history. We cannot separate the two." -Clara Luper, Associated Press interview, 2006

How can writing change the narrative change of centuries-old systemic racism, which describes Black America in general, and North Tulsa in specific, via a deficit lens and not as a valued source of culture, knowledge and talent, beyond sports & music? How can writing transcend the physical boundaries and the psychological & social boundaries and biases found in dominant culture? Dominant culture is so pervasive in a place like the USA, in a place like Oklahoma, that it’s easy to get drunk on the narrative. Particularly if one doesn’t know or has no regard for history, or for anything or anyone other than what you know. This workshop will offer an opportunity to heal, to write, to grow.

This workshop is made possible by support from the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation and the College of Arts and Sciences at Oklahoma State University.

Instructor: Quraysh Ali Lansana

  • Dates: Tuesdays, 7–9 p.m. for six weeks beginning Aug. 18
  • Registration Fee: $30
