This original production about the history of Tulsa’s Black Wall Street, the 1921 Massacre, and the experiences of Tulsa today as a result of this history will take you on an emotional ride through a variety of true stories. The play weaves the narrative of the historical account of the Massacre with true stories of people who live in Tulsa today. These stories were collected in 2017 and are told by a company of all-black actors living in Tulsa. The historical narratives were collected by Mary E. Jones Parrish in 1921 just weeks after the disastrous event. All stories are based on factual archival research.
