Home to the successful and historic Black Wall Street, the Greenwood District lost over 300 citizens to the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. The tragedy was kept a secret for 75 years. Greenwood continues to suffer from redlining policies and the construction of a highway which perpetuated the destruction of the community. “Tulsa Race Massacre: 100 Years Later” blends historical accounts of the massacre and the art of local creatives to paint a full picture of Greenwood—from the past, present and aspirations of a thriving future.
“Tulsa Race Massacre: 100 Years Later” is a production of OETA. It premiered Monday, May 31, 2021, in commemoration of the centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre.
