Join us as we visit with Hannibal B. Johnson, a Harvard Law School graduate, author, attorney, and consultant specializing in diversity, equity, and inclusion issues, human relations, leadership, and non-

profit leadership and management. Johnson has taught at The University of Tulsa College of Law, Oklahoma State University and The University of Oklahoma. He chairs the Education Committee for the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission. 

The Q&A format for this meeting will provide for an informative and interactive meeting.

Johnson’s books, including Black Wall Street, Up From the Ashes, Acres of Aspiration, Apartheid in Indian Country, Tulsa’s Historic Greenwood District, and The Sawners of Chandler, chronicle the 

African American experience in Oklahoma and its indelible impact on American history. Johnson’s play, Big Mama Speaks—A Tulsa Race Riot Survivor’s Story, was selected for the 2011 National Black Theatre Festival and has been staged in Caux, Switzerland. He has received numerous honors and awards for this work and his community service. Johnson serves on the federal 400 Years of African-American History Commission, a body charged with planning, developing, and implementing activities appropriate to the 400th anniversary of the arrival, in 1619, of Africans in the English colonies at Point Comfort, Virginia

Following the meeting, Johnson will be on hand to sign copies of his book, Black Wall Street.
