Learn: THE 1921 TULSA RACE MASSACRE: 100 YEARS LATER

August 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

With Phil Armstrong, Suzan Bradford, Caroline Bennett, and Jerica Wortham

Rebuilding a community. What can we learn from the rebuilding of Tulsa, Oklahoma’s, Greenwood District and the “Black Wall Street” massacre that destroyed it 100 years ago? What can we learn from the struggles of the King-Lincoln Bronzeville District, a historically black neighborhood in Columbus? How can these experiences inform our own community to become more diverse, equitable, and inclusive?

Join us for an online discussion with:

Phil Armstrong, Project Manager, 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission
Suzan Bradford, Executive Director, Lincoln Theatre
Caroline Bennett, Speaker, Educator, and Artist – CarolineINSPIRES LLC
Jerica Wortham, Project Director, Greenwood Art Project
