100th Anniversary Phi Alpha Theta Super-Regional Virtual Conference, March 12-13
University of Arkansas 1921 Yearbook, University of Arkansas Manuscript Collection
On March 14, 1921 professor Nels Andrew N. Cleven and a group of history students at the University of Arkansas established the University Historical Society. One month later they adopted the name Phi Alpha Theta. Now, 100 years later, the Alpha Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at the University of Arkansas is pleased to host this special centennial super-regional meeting to celebrate that anniversary and the study of history in all its myriad approaches.
The chapter is honored to welcome Karlos Hill, University of Oklahoma, as the keynote speaker to discuss the lessons and legacies of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. A Community Panel on Race paneled by the Washington County Community Remembrance Project on Friday evening is a Zoom webinar open to the public. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference is held virtually via Zoom with each active link included directly in the agenda. The conference is free but registration is encouraged to receive the full program details.
The virtual conference begins Friday afternoon, March 12, and ends Saturday evening, March 13. If you would like to receive the program with accessible Zoom links please register here.
