first_img Research reveals the long-term impact following the destruction of the Greenwood District Related Must we allow symbols of racism on public land? Ninety-nine years after a mob of poor white people killed 150 to 300 African Americans and destroyed the “Black Wall Street” in Tulsa, Okla., the city again made headlines when President Trump announced he would kick off his re-election campaign there on Juneteenth — the day that marks the final end of slavery in the U.S.Although the rally was subsequently rescheduled for Saturday, Trump’s actions brought renewed attention to the 1921 massacre in Tulsa’s Greenwood District, a tragedy that generally has been overlooked in American history classes. This oversight, said participants in a Weatherhead Initiative on Global History webinar on Thursday, is emblematic of — and continues to contribute to — America’s racial divide.“It’s difficult to have real dialogue about anything to do with race when we don’t have an accurate depiction of history,” said New Orleans Saints safety and Weatherhead visiting fellow Malcolm Jenkins, who introduced “A Conversation on Tulsa and the Long History of Dispossession of African Americans: What We Don’t Know.” Jenkins, who moderated the talk with Tulsa-raised journalist Caleb J. Gayle, M.B.A./M.P.P. ’19, and Khary Darlington, a writer, public speaker, and former scout for the Carolina Panthers, is developing a documentary film project on the massacre.Jenkins opened the discussion by sharing that he had not heard of the Tulsa massacre until he was in his 20s. Although Gayle grew up in Tulsa, he too only learned about it as a young adult. Returning from college, he recalled being struck by the newly built John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park, which commemorates the riot. “It became clear to me that so many others around me had no idea what had happened here,” he said, “not just the devastation that occurred, but the lives that were led.” Without understanding that, he asked, “how could we fast-forward to reconciliation?”During the course of Memorial Day weekend in 1921, a white mob eradicated the thriving Black Greenwood District of Tulsa, Okla. Public DomainThe discussion that followed explored that history. Nathan Nunn, the Frederic E. Abbe Professor of Economics, detailed the persistent health and economic effects of the tragedy, which destroyed an entire Black community. Elizabeth Hinton, the John L. Loeb Associate Professor of the Social Sciences in the Department of African and African American studies, looked at the role of the police in the massacre. Noting “the line of dispossession-policing interplay we can trace back to slavery,” she brought up the police obligation to protect property and “maintain social control over racially marginalized communities.”Such tragedies are ongoing, said Heather Ann Thompson, Collegiate Professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Michigan. Citing riots from the destruction of Rosewood in Levy County, Fla., in 1923 up through the razing of two city blocks in Philadelphia in 1985, she said, “There is a deep and long history of events like Tulsa.”Smashing communities and burying their histories erases stories of Black success and possibility, the panelists said. Following the Tulsa Race Massacre, Darlington said, “It became acceptable to believe that African Americans couldn’t reach the same heights as our [white] counterparts could. There’s a narrative within the Black community that there’s not room for all of us” to succeed. “There’s no way forward until and unless we truly reckon with all of this history.” — David J. Harris, managing director of Harvard Law School’s Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race & Justice Jenkins’s own history, which includes two Super Bowl rings, provided a link to the second part of the forum, a discussion of the role of Black athletes. Citing the incredible impact of social media, Denise Kwok, Director of USC Student-Athlete Academic Services, said, “In both professional and college athletics you hear some of the most prominent voices of African Americans.” As athletes use their prominence to speak out, they increase the potential for real change, she said. “They occupy hero roles.”But while multiple speakers pointed out advances such as the NFL coming out in support of Black Lives Matter, others worried that the gains are cosmetic. Ray Farmer, former general manager for the Cleveland Browns, said the dearth of Black team owners in the NFL helps determine representation in coaching and management. He said the number of Black general managers has decreased since 2014, and, “Those are the people who make those decisions.”Many speakers also referenced the current crises of police brutality and the racial disparities in health care revealed by the novel coronavirus. Jenkins, however, said he believes they may have opened a way forward. “Oddly, this pandemic has made all of us sit still and pay attention to what’s going on,” he said. “We have to sit in this moment and recognize truth.“Now that the whole country is on fire,” he said, “everyone is getting involved.” Juneteenth in a time of reckoningcenter_img The panelists said these myths need to be countered by regaining control of the narrative. Tulsa attorney Damario Solomon-Simmons, a leader in the drive for reparations, said, “So much of the history of Greenwood has been told by those who perpetrated the harm.”Addressing “the disinvestment and what we’ve done to our cities,” David J. Harris, managing director of Harvard Law School’s Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race & Justice, which cosponsored the webinar, pointed out the ongoing repercussions. Most recently, he said, “COVID-19 has revealed how these disparities have caused great harm.”“We can never let up,” said Harris. “There’s no way forward until and unless we truly reckon with all of this history.” The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and the financial fallout Legal scholar and historian puts the push to remove Confederate statues in context Members of the community share memories, plans, hopes for the holiday last_img read more

first_img Press Association Substitute Nikica Jelavic had three good chances for Everton, but Moyes’ men were beaten in his 518th and last game in charge before his move to Old Trafford. The opener came when Oscar surged through the middle and found Demba Ba, whose shot from the angle on the right was spilled by Tim Howard and Mata followed up for his 20th of the season. Naismith went close before equalising when he capitalised on a mistake from David Luiz. Luiz failed to control a regulation ball and Naismith nipped in, received a return pass from Victor Anichebe and clipped in over the advancing Petr Cech. Darron Gibson went close from a shot which deflected off Nathan Ake, hit the post, Cech’s head, then the post again. Gary Cahill saw a shot saved by Howard and Branislav Ivanovic fired over. Sylvain Distin deflected a Ba shot out for a corner after Phil Jagielka had gifted the striker the ball. Jelavic, on for Naismith, headed straight at Cech before fluffing a glorious chance when Leighton Baines crossed to the far post. Chelsea snatched the winner when Oscar’s cross from the right was met with a cushioned header by substitute Victor Moses and Torres was clinical, his half-volley beating Howard at his near post. Cech made a stunning stop at point-blank range when the striker met a Baines cross as Chelsea held on for victory. Twelve months to the day since Chelsea’s Champions League win in Munich, Juan Mata put the hosts in front, only for Steven Naismith to swiftly equalise for Manchester United-bound Moyes’ visitors. The Europa League winners were on top in the second half and sealed victory through £50million striker Torres’ first league goal since December 23 as Rafael Benitez’s seven-month spell ended with a 28th win from 48 matches. center_img Fernando Torres scored his first Barclays Premier League goal of 2013 as Chelsea sealed third place with a 2-1 victory which ensured David Moyes’ 11-year reign as Everton manager ended in defeat.last_img read more

first_img Press Association Bournemouth won the Championship last season and Chelsea the Premier League, with the victory showing not just how far the Cherries had come, but how far the Blues have fallen. Diego Costa started as a substitute for a second straight game, but, unlike at Tottenham, the striker was not left to brood for the entire 90 minutes and came on at half-time. Costa’s presence was limited until he fouled Adam Smith, was denied a penalty when his cutback hit Simon Francis on the arm and then was shown a yellow card for a foul on Matt Ritchie in quick succession. Pedro, or Costa, should have scored 15 minutes from time, but neither could get on the end of Branislav Ivanovic’s dangerous cross as Chelsea became increasingly frustrated by referee Mike Jones’ decisions. And Mourinho will be furious when he sees the replays of Murray’s winner, which came when Thibaut Courtois flapped at a corner and the former Crystal Palace striker headed in. Chelsea face further examinations against Porto and Leicester in the next 10 days, while the Cherries next play Manchester United. Eden Hazard received a written report after his Tottenham display as Mourinho wanted to leave no doubt over his delight at the performance. His first-half appraisal, continuing as Chelsea’s “false nine”, is unlikely to have been glowing. Jose Mourinho thought the reigning champions had turned a corner, but Eddie Howe’s visitors inflicted an eighth defeat of the season, the fourth at home. Glenn Murray headed in moments after coming off the substitutes’ bench and, while there may have been a hint of offside, the Cherries deserved their win in front of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, who could yet wield the managerial axe. Chelsea were plunged into crisis once more as Bournemouth claimed the biggest scalp of their Barclays Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge. The Belgian had a chance to end his search for a first goal of the season in his 20th game in the opening moments, but his shot was less than convincing and straight at Artur Boruc, the goalkeeper back from a six-week injury absence. Hazard would have been marked down by Mourinho soon after, too, when he lost the ball to Smith, in for the ill Sylvain Distin, and Junior Stanislas shot. Fortunately for Hazard, Gary Cahill blocked. Courtois was back for the first time in three months after his knee injury and soon showed why he was immediately restored, saving well from Stanislas. Joshua King could not get the rebound away and then fired at Courtois at the near post. The visitors attacked with pace and the Blues were vulnerable, particularly out wide. Costa, who flung his substitutes’ bib at Mourinho at the end of last Sunday’s draw at White Hart Lane, needed help from John Obi Mikel to put on his green bib after 29 minutes before warming up on the touchline. Chelsea were ponderous in possession and appeared to lack a presence up front, with Boruc saving from Hazard, Pedro and Oscar. Mourinho had seen enough, sending on Costa for Oscar. The muted half-time boos turned to applause just at the sight of the Spain striker going on. Nemanja Matic, wearing a protective mask, should have done better than head over Willian’s cross before Jones ignored Costa’s penalty appeal before booking the striker. Costa stretched to toe-poke Cesc Fabregas’ ball over the top, but Boruc saved. Murray scored eight minutes from time and Bournemouth might have had two more when Ritchie and Harry Arter fired wide on the counter-attack in a memorable win. TWEET OF THE MATCH “I think it was very considerate of Chelsea to swap sides with Leicester this season.” – Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) sums up change of fortunes for both Chelsea and Leicester as the champions suffer another Premier League defeat.

MOMENT OF THE MATCH Murray came off the substitutes’ bench to score Bournemouth’s winner. There was a hint of offside as he nodded in at the post after Chelsea failed to deal with a corner, with Courtois flapping. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Mourinho made one change following the Tottenham draw he regarded as Chelsea’s best performance of the season. But Costa was out of the starting XI for a second straight game. Chelsea were again ponderous in possession and lacked a presence, which barely changed when Costa came on at half-time. Bournemouth were without Sylvain Distin due to illness, so Smith came in and goalkeeper Boruc was back. The Cherries huddled round Howe and assistant Jason Tindall at any lengthy break in play and enacted the game plan perfectly. MOAN OF THE MATCH Fabregas floundering. One ball to Costa aside, the Spain playmaker again struggled to make a meaningful contribution. WHO’S UP NEXT Chelsea v Porto (Champions League, Wednesday, December 9) Bournemouth v Manchester United (Barclays Premier League, Saturday, December 12) Mourinho claimed his side were denied a “clear” penalty, but vowed his team would emerge from their difficult spell. The Portuguese told Sky Sports: “We dominated the game but one refereeing mistake cost us. It was a clear handball, with the result at 0-0, but that’s part of the game. In the first half we were not aggressive enough. We had a couple of shots and chances, but in the second half we were much more aggressive. “We tried in the period where we were stronger but this is the moment when they scored the goal and with five minutes to go with a team that was defending, some people call it intelligent, some people call it lack of play. “You know, time-outs, stop of the play, asking for a medical department to go in to drink for a minute like in basketball. But they did very well.” Asked if Costa’s introduction had made a positive difference, he said: “We were stronger in the second half but it was not because of Diego – it was the attitude, the intensity, the aggressiveness. We started pressing much higher and sooner. “I’m concerned and I was concerned before this game. You can imagine now after this defeat at home.” He added: “Chelsea will never be fighting for relegation – no chance. Chelsea will win matches and come out of that area. That’s not the problem. The problem is that our objective is to finish in the top four.” Howe, in contrast, was understandably delighted. “We’ve believed we’re on the right path. You look at our recent games and we’ve done really well, performed well in several of them but haven’t got the wins we feel we’ve deserved,” he said. “Today was a different kind of performance from us. We’ve had to show a different side to our game but I’m so pleased for the players for all their hard work this season. “First half, it was quite even. We were well in it. Second half we’ve played under pressure and we’ve had to dig in, we’ve had to defend, put our bodies on the line. I thought we were magnificent defensively. Our keeper played a big part in that. There’s been a lot of question marks about our defending this season but we’ve answered a few questions today. “I don’t think we’ve defended too badly this season, just individual mistakes, a few setbacks and disappointments have come our way. The players have always come in every day, working hard and try to improve themselves. Every setback they’ve had, they’ve bounced back.” last_img read more
