Alicia Odewale: Greenwood: A Century of Resilience

February 17 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$20 – $49

As a descendant of a survivor from the 1921 attack on Black Wall Street in the historic Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Dr. Alicia Odewale has devoted herself as an archaeologist to uncovering inspiring stories of hope in the century since the attack. What she has discovered is stunning evidence of a community’s resilience and triumph. Reclaiming the narrative and following her own family connections, she has unearthed invigorating personal stories, traced a path of restorative justice, and found revelations of how 100 years of perseverance has shaped this district into a thriving community today, in the aftermath of one of history’s worst episodes of racial violence against Black people. Student pricing at the National Geographic Live presentation starts at $12.50.
