Excellent work Linda. In 2011, I sponsored an art exhibition for students at Booker T Washington and Central High School students in Tulsa, asking students to "remember" the Race Riot through creative expression 90 years later.
These were the only two high schools that were existent in Tulsa in 1921. Over 75 students contributed to the exhibit which was shown at Living Arts of Tulsa.
Connecting our youth to our history is the key to moving us forward in a direction of that nurtures a better understanding and acceptance of our differences, especially when the process allows them to participate and not simply be told that "this happened back then".
Kudos to you for carrying the torch...we are not there yet but we are so much further than we were.
