Newman Center Presents

A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, archaeologist Alicia Odewale is uncovering stories of resilience in the hundred years since the attack on Black Wall Street in the city’s vibrant Greenwood district. Considered one of the worst episodes of racial violence committed against Black people in American history, the Tulsa Race Massacre left a devastating toll on generations of survivors and their descendants and impacted the very footprint of the district itself. Join Odewale to discover her archaeology can be used as a tool for recovering lost stories, reclaiming a narrative, and pursuing restorative justice.

National Geographic Live brings you behind-the-scenes stories, unforgettable imagery, and gripping footage from world-renowned photographers, scientists, writers, filmmakers and adventurers.

Co-Presented by the Denver Museum of Nature and Science
