Requesting that the City of Tulsa, Mayor G.T. Bynum, allow the temporary BLACK LIVES MATTER mural painted on Greenwood/The Black Wall Street during the Juneteenth Celebration, June 20, 2020, to be made into a permanent BLACK LIVES MATTER mural.

The mural on Greenwood Avenue/The Black Wall Street will serve as a constant reminder of the need for continuous change and honor the lives of those that were lost and forever changed due to the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot (also referred to as the Tulsa Race Massacre). 

The Tulsa Race Massacre took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents attacked black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It has been called "the single worst incident of racial violence in American history.”  

The Greenwood District/The Black Wall Street has never recovered, however, the mural will serve as a constant reminder of what was and what can be, promote growth, be uplifting and retain the history (in the remaining portion of the District) while continuing to instill pride in the area.
