The Dinner of Reconciliation is Nov. 21 at the Greenwood Cultural Center.

The featured speaker will be author and consultant Clifton Taulbert, who has served as a guest professor at Harvard University and whose work focuses on community healing.

John Hope Franklin was a pioneering scholar of American history and African-American studies who worked on the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case that outlawed public school segregation.

Franklin — whose father's law office was burned in the Tulsa race riots of 1921 — died in 2009 at age 94.
