Acknowledging the History of Black Wall Street


Tulsa, OK— Greenwood Rising, the new history center in the Greenwood District being built by the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission (“Centennial Commission”) will be built on land located at the southeast corner of Greenwood and Archer.

The Hille Foundation and 21 North Greenwood, LLC, already in the process of developing the land, halted construction and moved the site of a planned mixed-use building to donate the land to the Centennial Commission. In addition to this generous gesture, the Hille Foundation has long been engaged with the Centennial Commission's work. Many thanks to the Hille Foundation and 21 North Greenwood, LLC, for this extraordinary gift.

This prime site is: (1) situated just north of the Frisco Tracks, an important symbolic marker in the Greenwood District: (2) positioned so as to allow for walkability from a bustling point near “Deep Greenwood”; and (3) located at the single most iconic entrance into the Greenwood District.

Greenwood Rising will be built to the same specifications as originally planned. The Centennial Commission’s Pathway to Hope connecting to John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park, though soon-to-be reconfigured, will also remain a crucial part of the new Greenwood District experience.

Thanks to all the stakeholders, donors, elected officials, groups, and individuals who came together in the spirit of unity to make this all possible.                                                                Phil Armstrong, Project Director
