Acclaimed documentary film “Greenwood Ave Project” begins its U.S. national tour to commemorate the 102-year reminder of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.
The documentary highlights the Tulsa community and its efforts to rebuild after the 1921 Race Massacre that destroyed the homes and Black-owned businesses in that day. The film’s theme, “from the people, for the people,” acknowledges the goal of filmmaker Terry Baccus and executive producer Karen Reese in showing the aftermath of the Massacre in such a realistic way that will bring visceral, yet vulnerable, emotion in the audience.
Karen says, “Our project is valuable because it tells the stories of people from the Greenwood community after the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, revealing all the layers of the effects birthed from this horrific event.” She further adds, “We will achieve telling the story of the history of Greenwood to thousands of people that never knew about the Massacre at all. While also educating everyone on the after math of what has been going on after the rebuilding of Greenwood in 1925?”

The first showing will air May 31st and June 1st at the Dallas African American Museum in Texas. Additional locations include May 26th - June 1st at the Circle Cinema in Tulsa.
