Choctaw Confederates:  The American Civil War in Indian Country
When the Choctaw Nation was forcibly resettled in Indian Territory in present-day Oklahoma in the 1830s, it was joined by enslaved Black people—the tribe had owned enslaved Blacks since the 1720s. In Choctaw Confederates, author Fay A. Yarbrough reveals that, while sovereignty and states’ rights mattered to the Choctaw Nation’s leaders, the survival of slavery also determined the Nation’s support of the Confederacy. Yarbrough examines the experiences of Choctaw soldiers and notes that although their enthusiasm waned as the war persisted, military service allowed them to embrace traditional masculine roles that were disappearing in a changing political and economic landscape. By drawing parallels between the Choctaw Nation and the Confederate states, Yarbrough looks beyond the traditional binary of the Union and Confederacy and reconsiders the historical record.

How We Know What We See (& Hear):   How to "Read" an Oral History

This program explores oral history as an immediate, detailed, intimate historical document to study.

Because an oral history recording is a primary source document, like a letter, manuscript, or map, it can be analyzed and interpreted for its evidence of personal, family, community, national, even world history.

You'll be introduced to oral history interview techniques, procedures, and audio and video production tools to understand the structure and vocabulary of oral history.

The program then leads you, through artful critical thinking skills, to interpret, or "read," the evidence.

Using excerpts of oral history interview recordings of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, comedian Richard Pryor, and a little-known father and daughter, we will read evidence of Marshall’s life and US history; Pryor’s humanity and a liberal white interviewer's misuse of it; and one family’s responses to existential choices.

Join Pratt Special Collections Department staff to “read” oral history and develop visual literacy skills to interpret recordings and assess their value.

Sex, Lies and Genealogical Tape - Ron Arons

In this presentation, Ron discusses how to use ‘individual-focused’ genealogy to one’s advantage. Instead of focusing on collecting names, dates, and locations to expand one’s family tree, researching one individual at a time provides a very different and, arguably, much more satisfying experience. In this case, Ron will demonstrate how he discovered the sordid and salacious details of one of his ancestors, certainly the black sheep of the family. He does show by collecting as many different types of records as possible. The unexpected benefits of this approach are absolutely mind boggling!

Non-Members – can join us by contacting the society at scgs@scgsca.org no later than 4 pm the day prior to the event.

Spies, Slackers, and Aliens:  The American Protective League - Michael L. Strauss, AG
In 1917, citizens who believed the U. S. Department of Justice was understaffed and incapable of fighting against espionage organized The American Protective League (APL) in Chicago. This volunteer force of more than 250,000 was given absolute power to stop ordinary citizens in the streets --- to see if they were legally registered for draft, if they were German sympathizers, or if they were unregistered aliens. Long believed to be a pseudo-patriotic organization, the APL actually was a paranoid extremist group set up to counter anti-war activism and left-wing labor and politics.
