The Brady District is named after Wyatt Tate Brady, a Klansman who played a role in the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot. If Oklahoma City renamed Bricktown the McVeigh District it would be an uproar all across this state. We still have survivors here who have to still have to face Tate Brady and their tax dollars goes to build up The Brady District. What a slap in the face to those survivors!! We need to do what is right and change this name and not honor a man who caused racial division and having been a member of one of the most terrorist groups ever..The Klu Klux Klan!
Tulsa let's stand up!! I am calling all of Tulsa no matter what color you are...to sign this petition to change the name of The Brady District to a name that symbolizes a unified Tulsa and a name that bears no insult to the survivors of The 1921 Tulsa Race Riot or their descendents.
