Some call recent mass shootings a symptom of a ‘rising tide of hate in America’. In response to recent killings in El Paso and Dayton, Tulsa civic, religious, and educational leaders gather for a discussion on hate and what can be done about it. Keynote Speaker Clifton Taulbert, a Tulsa author, says it starts with each of us…we can do something if we treat those different with respect and understanding.

Taulbert says HATE has been with us as long as people have existed, but, he reminded the audience, so has LOVE. The OU Center for Studies in Democracy and Culture sponsored the discussion at OU-Tulsa.
