You may know the Greenwood District as the backdrop to Hanson’s “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin'” music video. But there is a lot more to this historic district that played a big part in Oklahoma history, Black Oklahoma History and American history. ahha Tulsa (which you may know as the past site of the Hanson Day gallery) is hosting a virtual series every Thursday in April from 7-8pm.
Each week will cover a different topic:
- Blacks in Oklahoma Pre-Statehood (1830-1907)
- The Evolution of Greenwood (1890-1921)
- The National Climate
- The Massacre
- The Aftermath
This class series was created by Tri-City Collective and will be taught virtually over Zoom on Thursdays in April. Registrants may purchase one ticket per computer/household and will be sent a private link to join the Zoom sessions by March 29. Individuals will not be admitted to the meeting if their name is not on our registration list.
