Congressional Black Caucus presents “Before They Die!”

Please join Congressman John Conyers; the Congressional Black Caucus; and The Tulsa Project for “Reflections on the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921,” and a screening of the feature documentary film Before They Die!, which chronicles the survivors’ journey for justice in their own words.

The event will be held:
September 25, 2009, 3:00 to 6:00 pm
Washington Convention Center, Room 145B
801 Mount Vernon Place, NW
Washington, DC 20001

Meet Tulsa Race Riot Survivors: 94 yr. old Dr. Olivia Hooker and 91 yr. old Wess Young. They will be part of a Talk Back moderated by producer/director Reggie Turner, featuring Harvard professor and lead counsel for the survivors, Charles J. Ogletree, Jr., members of Congress and special guests to discuss H.R. 1843: The John Hope Franklin Tulsa-Greenwood Race Riot Claims Accountability Act of 2009 and the continuing movement for justice.

The 1921 Tulsa Race Riot is one of America’s least know and worst acts of domestic terrorism.

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to see, experience, touch and change history.

Help Us, Help Them….Before They Die!

    Please let me know what I can do to help. I am totally commented to seeing that justice is done. I’m a friend of Dr. Hooker. I promise not to stop fighting . I can’t believe that even today we still have to go through this. No, yes I can- that’s why I continue to tell my children that they must understand the struggle. As for me,my husband and our two young men count us in!!!
