Buck Colbert Franklin Memorial Civil Rights Lecture featuring Hannibal B. Johnson, Esq.

Join us virtually as The University of Tulsa College of Law proudly presents the 21st Annual Buck Colbert Franklin Memorial Civil Rights Lecture featuring guest speaker, Hannibal B. Johnson, Esq. as he presents “Affirming America’s Promise” on Thursday, February 18, 2021. Mr. Johnson is an attorney, author and consultant in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A graduate of Harvard Law School and the University of Arkansas, Mr. Johnson specializes in diversity and inclusion, cultural competence and nonprofit governance. He serves on the federal 400 Years of African-American History Commission and he chairs the education committee for the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission.

The Buck Colbert Franklin Memorial Civil Rights Lecture honors one of the first black attorneys in Tulsa and Oklahoma. In the aftermath of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, Franklin served his community and his profession by assisting victims. Working from a tent because his office and home had been destroyed, he represented clients, filed briefs and fought back against the injustice of the massacre and the city’s assault on the Tulsa black community. The lecture also honors the legacy of his son, the distinguished historian John Hope Franklin, who delivered the first lecture in the series.
