Keynote Speaker, DeNeen L. Brown, a reporter at The Washington Post, opened the conference by discussing the history of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and the Red Summer of 1919, when a reign of racist terror massacres and lynchings swept more than 25 cities across the United States. The Red Summer of 1919 set the stage for the Tulsa Race Massacre, which historians call the single worst incident of racist violence committed against Black Americans in U.S. history. A panel presentation followed incorporating the efforts being made to locate and identify victims of the massacre.
Forensic Investigative Genetic Genealogy continues to be a topic of interest with presentations focused on standards for the field and how the technique should be used going forward.
Other topics included implementing Rapid DNA, emerging technologies in the field, massively parallel sequencing, identification of Ukrainian war victims and much more!
