Watching Watchmen: Race and Responsibility in Tulsa with Sean Latham & Nehemiah Frank

February 19  |  7 p.m.
Sean Latham, Director of the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities, will frame a discussion about Race and Responsibility in Tulsa around the HBO series, Watchmen with Nehemiah D. Frank, founder and editor of The Black Wall Street Times. They will delve into the new HBO Watchmen series specifically and comic book superheroes in general, looking at their history, understanding their relevance, and gauging their impact.

Watchmen begins with the Tulsa Race Massacre and declares that on that day in 1921, history essentially fell to pieces. The series critiques superhero mega-franchises by insisting that their special-effect laden stories have deliberately avoided and even obscured the long history of American racism. Crucially, it insists that we move beyond the superhero narrative—beyond the fantasy that we can be saved from our past mistakes by a singular being or magical technology—but rather healing those wounds is a long, difficult, and deeply human process. This process is one which we both witness and perhaps even experience in the show—and which we can carry beyond it into our Tulsa. Healing is not a superpower, but a process that requires love, labor, and honesty—all traits we will need heading into the 1921 centennial.

CYP Rules

Peace Practices:
Do no harm in word or deed.
Respect yourself and all others.
Everyone gets to play and have their say.

We ask that each family help Children’s and Youth Programs (CYP) succeed by volunteering for a minimum of 10 hours a year. We can help you find your calling to serve the church as a volunteer. Please email sboston@allsoulschurch.org.

Peanut-free Zone!
For the safety of children with a dangerous peanut allergy, All Souls Children’s Areas are peanut-free. Snacks brought into class must not contain peanuts and not have been manufactured where peanuts are processed. Please wash your child’s hands and face and check their clothing if they ate peanut butter before coming to church. Inform us of any allergies by completing a medical release form in the Family Room and let CYP staff know.

Parent or Guardian on site.
A parent or assigned guardian must stay on the church premises while their child is participating in church activities. As a safety measure, we require that all children and youth attending CYP are checked-in upon arrival and checked-out upon leaving.

Sick? Stay home.
If your child has a contagious condition or has experienced fever, vomiting, or diarrhea in the past 24 hours, please keep your child at home.

Dress for the Weather
Children should come dressed for the weather and dressed for fun. They will go outside for some portion of the morning unless the weather is severe, so bring labeled coats and sweaters when the weather warrants. Some of our projects may get messy, so please save your finest clothes for Festival Sundays.

No Electronics during CYP
Electronic devices disrupt our activities and isolate students. We ask devices remain at home or with the parent or guardian. Staff will collect devices that are brought into classrooms and will return them at the end of the day’s program.

Childcare on Sundays

Our priority is to ensure all children feel safe, secure, and loved. Trained, paid caregivers ensure consistent and quality care and parents are welcome to stay for a few minutes to help their children settle in. There are observation windows in the hallway to help assure parents of their children’s well-being.

Nine (9) children is the maximum for our infant room and fourteen (14) is the maximum in our toddler room.
