The Tulsa Race Massacre and the Cost of Erasing History

As Oklahomans and the nation commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, three experts recount the harrowing history of the worst single incident of racial violence in America. Join them as they explore the suppression and outright denial of that history, spotlight those who fought to uncover the truth, and reflect on our country’s ongoing power struggle to tell historical narratives related to race. Scott Ellsworth served as chief historian on the Tulsa Race Riot Commission (1999-2000) and chairs the committee leading the effort to identify the unmarked graves of victims. His new book, "The Ground Breaking," unearths the lost history and discusses the fight to win restitution for the victims’ families. Tulsa native Caleb Gayle, who writes about the impact of history on race and identity, has a major article about the Tulsa Race Massacre forthcoming in the New York Times Magazine. And Mechelle Brown-Burdex manages programs at Tulsa’s Greenwood Cultural Center and has dedicated her career to telling the history of Black Wall Street. She is a member of the Tulsa Mass Graves Historical Narrative Committee. The program is moderated by Aaron Morrison, award-winning multimedia journalist and national race and ethnicity writer for The Associated Press.

This program is part of the multi-faceted public history project "Brooklyn Resists" which includes an exhibition at the Center for Brooklyn History (128 Pierrepont Street), a collecting initiative, website, curriculum, as well as regular evening programs.

In Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman provided one of the first records of q***r life in Brooklyn, and wrote into existence words and symbols for men who loved men. He dubbed their feeling for one another “adhesiveness,” and recommended the use of the calamus flower as a love token.

CBH Workshop: Mutualism Discussion

Join us for an open discussion led by MacArthur ‘genius’ Sara Horowitz about the concept of ‘mutualism’ -- a term that describes how individuals come together and work collaboratively to solve the problems we face. We'll exchange personal experiences of mutualism, talk about how we all participate in mutualistic activities (even if we don’t recognize them as such), and imagine new ways that our communities can unite in the spirit of helping each other. This is the first of a number of open conversations. Ultimately, we’ll collect your ideas, thoughts, and stories and share them with a larger public.

Mutualism in Action: Brooklyn's Communities Unite

In biology the term “mutualism” describes the coming together of two organisms in ways that benefit both, like the classic example of flowers and bees. Sara Horowitz, MacArthur “genius” and founder of the Freelancers Union, has spent her professional life putting this into practice for people. Her book, “Mutualism”, offers a vision of a new society, where we depend on neither government nor business for our basic safety net, but on our own collective power. Mutualist organizations are hiding in plain sight all around us, Sara Horowitz explains, all we need to do is open our eyes. Join Sara as she leads a discussion with four Brooklynites who shape the mutualism in our borough. You’ll hear from Dr. Emma Jordan-Simpson, Executive Pastor of the Concord Baptist Church of Christ and Executive Director of the Fellowship of Reconciliation; Ani Simon-Kennedy, a volunteer with Clinton Hill-Fort Greene Mutual Aid; Tony Schloss, who led the community effort to bring WiFi to Red Hook during Hurricane Sandy; and Sheryl Nash-Chisholm of the Red Hook Initiative. Then chime in with your own thoughts and examples as we open up the discussion in true mutualist style.

We invite you to continue this conversation with us in a participatory way on June 3 with a workshop led by Sara Horowitz. You can register for this workshop here: https://www.bklynlibrary.org/calendar/cbh-workshop-mutualism-virtual-20210603

Canarsie Dreaming © Gary Shulman December 2020 Seaview Park on a warm Summer’s day A stroll down the “L” then with my buddies I’d play Pensy Pinky would hit that penny with joy Red Rover, Red Rover what fun! Oh Boy!!! Canarsie Pier we’d explore with childish delight Every fish we’d see, a miraculous sight! If good we had been a toy for some pennies We’d hurry right into magical Kenny’s Late into Summer block parties would last Celebrating our neighbors, lord what a blast! When hunger attacked us, to Deli’s we’d run Or maybe a pizza with soda, what fun! Then Saturday morning a movie we’d see Canarsie Theater on the L was my cup of tea Then more modern and ritzy Seaview Theater was born Making a decision between the two, I was often torn The schools were supreme, with teachers the best Then once it was 3, out the door to invest In our futures by sharing the love of each other With memories of Canarsie a home like no other The memories paint pictures of joy in my brain Even today when life brings some pain But connecting with those whose lives we all shared Makes tomorrow worthwhile, knowing Canarsie folks cared “Canarsie on My Mind” © Gary Shulman October 2020 The joyous memories both precious and kind Hit the Penny, smoky Mahjong games That’s Canarsie on My Mind The Christmas display on Flatland’s we’d find Every crisp snowy December In Canarsie on my mind Oh what a treat when at Grabstein’s we dined French fries, Cream soda and pastrami That’s Canarsie on my mind On all the important holidays, our shoes were highly shined We’d love to show off our finest In Canarsie on my mind Our very hard working parents, each day was such a grind But always making time for the children In Canarsie on my mind And now so many cherished days, I have left behind My life is in its Winter Sweet thoughts are forever enshrined But sweetest of all, most cherished and refined Is my sweet sweet Canarsie Forever on my mind. East NY Back in the Day © Gary Shulman, MS. Ed. May 31, 2021 Swarms of families came to East NY All filled with supreme expectation That success for them would happen soon Regardless of their station Children played all day outside without a single care Everyone’s mom was your guardian angel We did not know about fear Shopping sprees on Pitkin was everyone’s delight Crossing Pennsylvania Ave. would often cause us such a fright! We loved our Local barbers, local bakers, butchers too All were your parent’s friends And during hard times, Friend’s so very true Our moms and dads would have such a feat Each and every day Just to make those difficult ends meet While we children would joyously play We young ones had no idea nor clue That struggles were common back then For mom and dad kept their turmoil hidden And with each sunrise, would just try again To make East NY a safe haven A safe haven in our blossoming life We rarely knew their financial woes, Their ills, their pains, their strife We’ve mostly all grown up to be Adults who made them so proud For East NY taught us all To hold our heads up high in a crowd And never be ashamed of the journey we have taken To get to where we are today For kindness we’ve never forsaken For those moms and dads in East NY Who lovingly showed us the way That all is possible and all can be achieved Now back outside to play!
I'm trying to find out who Rutland Road in Brooklyn is named after.
My name is Rob Cain. I am looking for the family on Vincenzo Attanasio who lived in Brooklyn, New York, in the 1930s. Mr. Attanasio was a harpist and originally came from Sorrento, Italy. I am well aware that this is over 90 years ago, but his family (I hope) is still in the Brooklyn New York area. If you know of anyone with that name could you send them my email? [email protected] [email protected] I am hoping his family could tell me about their great(?) great-great (?) uncle?. This is a matter of historical significance.

Does anyone know the family of one Vincenzo Attanasio who lived in Brooklyn in 1931? At the time he was 62 years old and a harpist. He came from Sorrento Italy. He was acquainted with the Baroness a de Benneval, and the famous painter Warren Sheppard. Please help. Do you have a family in your area named Attanasio? Did they live on Brooklyn Street between the 30s and 60s? A grandson, daughter, or great cousin might be able to answer my question. This is a bit of REAL Brooklyn history that needs to be answered. If you do, or at least know of a family with that name please respond to [email protected].
