The Black Wall Street Legacy Festival begins on the weekend of May 28, the anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, and lasts through the celebration of Juneteenth on June 19.
The Black Wall Street Legacy Festival seeks to elevate and amplify the hard work and voices of Black Tulsans over the last 100 years by offering opportunities to reflect, learn, and inspire through community curated experiences.
This festival exists because the story of Tulsa’s Black community and history, especially the 1921 Race Massacre, is severely undertold; mistruths and erasure of this history robs the community of respectful remembrance.
This festival exists to serve as a platform and incubator for Greenwood and Tulsa’s Black community, focusing on generational excellence.
This festival exists to extend our legacy into the future, empowering future generations to learn and ground themselves in the story where they came from.
