“Black Wall Street 100” and the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre @ The Community Library
10:00 am
The Community Library and Idaho Humanities Council welcome Hannibal B. Johnson, author of “Black Wall Street 100: An American City Grapples With Its Historical Racial Trauma,” for a virtual conversation about the history and continuing implications of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Johnson will be in conversation with David Pettyjohn, executive director of the Idaho Humanities Council, and Jenny Emery Davidson, executive director of The Community Library. On May 31, 1921, a white mob attacked the predominantly Black neighborhood of Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Tensions among white Tulsans had been running high over Greenwood, home of the thriving business district referred to as the Black Wall Street, even before the events leading up to May 31. Over the course of eighteen hours, hundreds of Black citizens were killed, thousands were left homeless, and black-owned businesses including two newspapers, a school, a hospital, churches, hotels, and stores were destroyed or damaged by fire. The event is one of the deadliest riots and worst incidents of racial violence in U.S. history, and has remained one of the least known. Hannibal B. Johnson, a Harvard Law School graduate, is an author, attorney, and consultant. He has taught at The University of Tulsa College ...

How negotiable is a “fact?” When John’s essay about the suicide of Las Vegas teenager Levi Presley is selected by an illustrious magazine editor, Emily Penrose, to be featured in a fast-approaching publication, Jim Fingal is assigned his first major job: the straight forward task of fact-checking the essay. Jim–with sincerity, a dogged loyalty to accuracy, and a tight deadline–digs into the essay and begins to discover it is rife with inconsistencies, fabrications and misleading claims.

Kelly Ording~ A Bright Side Exhibition at Gilman Contemporary @ Gilman Contemporary | Sun Valley | Idaho | United States
12:00 am
Gilman Contemporary is pleased to announce “A Bright Side” an exhibition of works on paper and canvas by Oakland, CA artist Kelly Ording. From muted tones to vibrant colors, pen and ink drawings to paintings, Kelly Ording intentionally pushes the limits of minimalism and representation. She separates her paintings between abstracted landscapes and geometric abstractions, the former being intuitive and the latter being more intentional. The landscapes pull their palettes from the natural world, while the geometric pieces give Kelly the freedom to use bright and exuberant tones. Each piece begins with a dyeing process, setting up a composition based on the natural result of this process. Some papers or canvases are dyed by hand with large watercolor brushes and others are dip-dyed. Kelly’s process mimics natural occurrences, like the tides and the unstoppable passing of time which she constantly contemplates. “The past year has undoubtedly challenged our understanding of the passing of time. My paintings explore the marking of time and question how one is able to register time in a visual way.” Gallery Hours: Monday through Friday 10-5 Saturday 11- 5
