Black Wall Street Music Project Held
A private listening session for 1921: The Black Wall Street Music Project, was held at Lefty’s on Greenwood in Tulsa’s historic Greenwood District in April.
One Tulsa’s Executive Director Fred Jones brought together some of Tulsa’s brightest stars to be a part of this musical collective such as Taylor Hanson, Majeste Pearson, Lester Shaw II, Dane Arnold, and Omaley B.
The project also featured a song by Black Wall Street Musician trailblazer and international recording artist Washington Rucker who is 85 years young. A song by the late Wayman Tisdale, which includes students from Tulsa’s Legacy Charter school and spoken word artist Kody Ransom’s special tribute to Tulsa with Oklahoma Made, was part of the project.
Fred Jones stated, “We’ve done our best to cover several genres of music on the project as we salute the resilience of the Tulsa North Community, and the City of Tulsa at large as we look to the 100-year race massacre commemoration and as we move forward we will continue to do our part for a better Greenwood.”
