Art, Community, and Healing a Century after the Tulsa Race Massacre: A Conversation with Jerica Wortham and William Cordova, Greenwood Art Project

Description: On November 19, Dr. David Gray, Teaching Assistant Professor in the American Studies Program, Oklahoma State University, will host a conversation with Jerica Wortham and William Cordova, Program Manager and Lead Artist, respectively, for the Greenwood Art Project. The conversation will center on the Greenwood Art Project’s work as part of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre Centennial Commission. The Project “focuses on uniting the city of Tulsa by working with artists, residents, leaders, organizations, and businesses to elevate awareness of Greenwood’s history, focusing on the 1921 Tulsa Massacre and the once-thriving Black Wall Street.”

The event is free and open to the public and is part of the public programming for Dr. Gray’s course on the Tulsa Race Massacre at OSU.
