News from the Library of CongressLibrary to Reopen Four Reading Rooms June 2 Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden with Janice Ruth, chief of the Manuscript Division, masked and ready for the arrival of researchers. Beginning Tuesday, June 1, 2021, the Library of Congress will reopen four reading rooms to allow research access for a limited number of registered readers by appointment only.This represents the first step in the Library's plan to gradually resume on-site public services and access, while incorporating proven health and safety policies and procedures.

The official tally of the dead has varied from 36 to nearly 300. White fatalities are documented at 13. Some 35 square blocks of Black-owned homes, businesses, and churches were torched; thousands of Black Tulsans were left homeless and yet no local, state or federal agency ever pursued prosecutions. The event was so quickly dismissed by local officials that today, a century later, several local organizations are still investigating reports of mass graves.The Library has assembled these resources to help you conduct your own research about the Tulsa Race Massacre with Library collections:Racial Massacres and the Red Summer of 1919Tulsa Race Massacre: Topics in Chronicling AmericaAlso, several Library of Congress blogs guide you through different aspects of this staggering tragedy:How to Research the 1921 Tulsa Race MassacreTulsa Race Massacre: Newspaper Complicity and CoverageFor Teachers: Exploring the Impact of the Tulsa Race MassacreThe Tulsa Race Massacre: Relief and the Role of the American Red CrossAlso, follow #Tulsa100 on the social media channels of the Library and the museums of the Smithsonian Institution through June 1, the National Day of Remembrance, to learn more.Tulsa World newspaper page Asian Pacific American Heritage MonthMay is Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

I've long been both a card guy and a card snob, so the simple but elegant bifold printed on recycled paper drew me like catnip entices a tabby.On its outside it simply says, “I love you, dad” with the subtle flourish of the period at the end of the sentiment being a red heart.The post GUEST POST: My Dad Just Died; These Five Fatherhood Lessons He Taught Me Live On appeared first on Jim Daly.
