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.

The M’s in Russian Dolls’ packages – including the letterman jacket – are a nod to Hanson’s song, “MMMBop”
The Weird Al clue is a nod to Weird Al’s famous cameo in Hanson’s “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin'” music video
The puppet strings and banjo strings in Russian Dolls’ packages are a clue to Hanson’s orchestral album, ‘String Theory’
Abraham Lincoln in the Russian Dolls’ packages is a clue to Zac’s son Abraham as well as the group’s popular song ‘Penny & Me’
It was a triple reveal on “The Masked Singer” as we finally found out who was behind the Russian Dolls. They hit the top of the charts way back in 1997, with a little tune called “MMMBop.”
Three singers, one big reveal, and one famous last name.
“The Masked Singer’s” Russian Dolls have been revealed as singing brothers Hanson.
Not only did they belt out their best, they did it in bulky costumes.
Isaac Hanson: “It was definitely heavy and, I mean, the sight lines were definitely complicated, and your range of motion was generally — it was complicated, but we made the most of it. We had a great time.”
Isaac Hanson: “I’ve never been that close to my brothers before, and I don’t ever want to be that close.”
Zac Hanson: “Some nice mint gum was required.”
Taylor Hanson: “It did get us thinking about a new rendition of ‘Guys and Dolls.’”
The doll disguise did help keep people guessing.
Zac Hanson: “There was never any fourth person. We did strategically move dolls around, have dancers move dolls around when the cameras weren’t looking at them.”
Though it wasn’t a secret from all audience members.
Isaac Hanson: “Most of the kids knew. I had to keep my — I had to keep my 7-year-old daughter in the dark, because that girl cannot keep a secret.”
Zac Hanson: “My kids knew, and they were into it. They thought it was cool.”
Up next for Hanson is new music and a tour!
Zac Hanson: “We have a brand new album. It’s called ‘Against the World,’ and what we’re doing is releasing it one song at a time: July, August, September, October. We’ll be doing streaming shows with limited in-person tickets, and then, in the spring of 2022, we’ll be touring around the world.”
And on “The Masked Singer,” it’s now time for the final four, next Wednesday, right here on 7.
Check out this pic during the making of our latest music video for the brand new single, Annalie. This week we are unfolding a ton of new music and announcements about the new album Against The World. Check out the song wherever music is streamed or sold!
The identity of The Russian Dolls was revealed as a popular 1990s band on “The Masked Singer.”
