Description:

In the wake of the violence that took place during the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, it is estimated that 35 city blocks lay in charred ruins, over 800 people were treated for injuries, and approximately 300 deaths occurred. The vibrancy that once lined Greenwood Ave. symbolizing black ownership and success was burned down. Over the past several decades, The Kirkpatrick Heights Addition and Greenwood area has undergone dramatic social and physical changes. Working with lead consultant WRT, the TSW team will participate in the creation of a Master Plan that is built from the ground up with the community’s voice and support and will carve a path forward for the Kirkpatrick Heights Addition and Greenwood area.
