Out From Smoke & Ash


In 1921, the Tulsa, Oklahoma neighborhood of Greenwood was one of the most affluent all-black communities in America. Known as the “Black Wall Street,” it covered 40 square blocks and boasted more than 600 businesses and 15,000 residents which was demolished, scores killed, and thousands left homeless. This is the retailing of this story through a mix of mediums and performances as well as spoken word.
