Event

Tulsa '21: Black Wall Street
Performances on June 29-30 will be held at OSU-Tulsa Auditorium, 700 N. Greenwood Ave.
Performance on July 1 will be held at Greenwood Cultural Center, 322 N. Greenwood Ave.

This is an original theatre production about the history of Tulsa's Black Wall Street, the 1921 Massacre, and the current experiences of Tulsa today as a result of this history. The play weaves the narrative of the historical account of the Massacre with true stories of people who live in Tulsa today. These stories were collected in the summer 2017 and are told by a company of all-black actors living in Tulsa. The historical stories were collected by Mary E. Jones Parrish in 1921 just weeks after the disastrous event. All stories are based on factual archival research found in newspapers, TU, and OSU-Tulsa.

The play is written and directed by Tara Brooke Watkins, a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma currently working on a PhD in Theatre and Performance Studies at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. All proceeds to this event go to support arts programming at the Greenwood Cultural Center in Tulsa.
