TULSA, OK — Black Wall Street Gallery, a subsidiary of Black Wall Street Arts, will launch the fifth installment in the Conciliation Series featuring two artists:
“The Green Book” by Calvin A. Ramsey is a play about a time when many African-Americans were traveling by car and had the freedom of mobility for the first time, and they were eager to go out on the road. However, segregation brought hidden dangers, and vulnerable Blacks had to maneuver to find safety in accommodations, leisure activities, restaurants, service establishments and anything that they would need during their travels.
Saxophonist and composer Tia Fuller, a strong and versatile post-bop musician who recently released her fifth album as a leader, will front a quartet at Duet Jazz. Per JazzTimes, she’s a player who “wields a silvery tone and is prone to serpentine improvisations that zig, zag, jab, and sour with brisk fluidity.”
My House is The Red Earth: An Evening With Joy Harjo and T.C. Cannon
Each act speaks to a facet of society we have all been affected by, mirroring the interlocking and abutting structure of life.
Tulsa’s elevation to a metropolitan city is best illustrated by two budding scenes that take place, literally, underground.
