Directed by Kelly Kerr, OSU’s coordinator of student media, the feature-length documentary looks at those who live and work in Tulsa’s Greenwood District today, what the future holds for Greenwood and how the memory of the massacre effects the neighborhood.

Kerr created an independent study course last fall and used OSU students as crew members. Production took a year, and the students conducted more than 20 interviews, earning college credit for their work.

The film concludes with Taylor Hanson, of the Tulsa-based Grammy-nominated band Hanson, performing an original song about Greenwood.

“Greenwood: Here and Now” will premiere at 7 p.m. Wednesday on the O’Colly Media Group app, which is available on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Firestick. For more information, go to https://www.ocolly.com.
