Annual Eddie Faye Gates Lecture with Dr. Autumn Brown

As part of Gilcrease Museum’s IMLS CARES Act Grant “From Trauma to Resilience: Learning from the Eddie Faye Gates Collection,” Gilcrease invites you to attend a free and public lecture by IMLS Research Scholar Autumn Brown, co-hosted with the Greenwood Cultural Center. Registration is required.

“Break and Build: They can break, but they can’t erase – they can build, but they can’t bury”

This year’s Annual Eddie Faye Gates lecture, co-hosted by Gilcrease Museum and the Greenwood Cultural Center, will center on resilience, strength and rebuilding. The importance of Greenwood and North Tulsa goes far beyond the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. In fact, the Greenwood District was a fully realized antidote to the violent racial oppression of the early 1900s and remains a space of solace for Black Tulsans and descendants of the Race Massacre. Brown will examine the importance of North Tulsa in Eddie Faye Gates’ life and work, as well as the many ways in which Greenwood is thriving today. What took years to build was destroyed in less than 24 hours. But as the title of the lecture states, they can break but they can’t erase.

Autumn Brown is IMLS Research Scholar at Gilcrease Museum. She earned her Ph.D. in Social Foundations of Education at Oklahoma State University. Her doctoral research focused on Civil Rights leader and teacher activist Clara Luper. She is the lead researcher in the IMLS CARES Act Grant at Gilcrease Museum focused on the Eddie Faye Gates Tulsa Race Massacre Collection and is also a research professional at OSU with the Oklahoma Oral History Research Program (OOHRP). She is a member of Tri-City Collective, Inc., whose work is driven by a passion for social justice and creative expression.

Cadenhead-Settle Memorial Lecture in History

Join us for the annual Cadenhead-Settle Memorial Lecture featuring Craig Koslofsky, professor of history at the University of Illinois.

Koslofsky’s current book project is tentatively titled, The Deep Surface: Skin in the Early Modern World, and he is also the author of the award-winning Evening’s Empire: A History of the Night in Early Modern Europe (Cambridge University Press, 2011).

The Cadenhead-Settle Memorial Lecture honors two former TU faculty members, Ed Cadenhead and William Settle, who taught history for decades and published world-renowned works of history.
