"Hate Crimes in the Heartland"

The Cincinnati Human Relations Commission is proud to be a collaborative partner for “Hate Crimes in the Heartland”. “Hate Crimes in the Heartland” will be presented on March 24 at the Mayerson Jewish Community Center.  The film connects the 2012 Good Friday Murders in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to the 1921 Race Riots that destroyed America’s “Black Wall Street,” and left Tulsa divided among racial lines forever. The film reveals the role of the media – both then and now – in controlling information and influencing public response and the justice system. The discussion is led by key national public figures including Rev. Jesse Jackson, Harvard Professor Charles Ogletree, Tulsa District Attorney Tim Harris, and DePaul legal clinician Andrea Lyon, who examine the city of Tulsa as a microcosm of our American social, cultural, and racial landscape. Panelists will include Rabbi Gary Zola, Chief Blackwell, filmmaker Rachel Lyons and will reflect issues of diversity, inclusion and justice today.  Please RSVP by going to
