"An Evening with Tim Blake Nelson" will feature Nelson talking about his career, focusing on his recent work in the HBO miniseries "Watchmen," which focuses on events surrounding the Tulsa Race Massacre.

In "Watchmen," the burning of Greenwood becomes a promise — albeit a fictional one. There are reparations, a sprawling memorial and a thriving multi-racial community. As this city now works on its own memorials to the events of 1921, we would do well to look at "Watchmen" — at the way it insists on a powerful vision of justice that becomes a promise we must labor every day to keep.
