Thursday, May 17, 2018: The North Tulsa Economic Development Initiative (NTEDi) nonprofit organization invites you to support and participate in our 6th Annual Book Scholarship Awards Celebration on May 17, 2018 from 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm. The theme for the celebration is “Tomorrows Leaders, Excelling Today!”.

 

The Book Scholarship Awards Celebration will be held at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame; 111 East First Street-Upper Level, Tulsa, Oklahoma. The NTEDi Book Scholarship Awards celebration supports the continued education of deserving Tulsa students. Caroline Bennett, a dynamic Speaker, inspired by her realities and dreams, her passion, purpose, and hustle in life illuminates the lived experience of Black girls and their truths. She uses spoken word, story-telling and song as tools of liberation and resistance to join with Black girls who have been silenced by their past and/or paralyzed by their fears. Caroline believes “Black girls have a right and a reason to survive, 'come alive', and thrive in educational spaces, ‘da streets’ and other institutional spaces that try to “steal, kill and destroy” our identities.” -Caroline Bennett

 

On a full-ride scholarship at The Ohio State University, Bennett recently graduated with Master’s degree in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality studies. Attending and graduating from two Predominately White Institutions (PWI’s), her position as a Black woman has afforded her a unique “outside-within” status. She was committed to transforming the academy and classrooms from the inside out and privileging the knowledge she possesses to write, sing, speak and live as access- bridging a gap for the communities she writes with, for and to.

 

Born and raised on the north Side of Tulsa, Oklahoma she is a proud product of the hood. Bennett is notorious for saying, “The ‘Streets’ #RaisedMe, The University of Oklahoma #GroomedMe and The Ohio State University #BloomedMe” in efforts to acknowledge how although her formal schooling has taken place in institutional settings she’d be remised if she didn’t pay homage to where she passed her “first tests”- in ‘da streets.’ Caroline challenges society’s construction and hierarchizing of knowledge and the forms it takes.

Healthy Neighborhood Overlay Does not Benefit North Tulsa

The question that the City Council and the Community Leaders should continue to ask, what would people in the community do if the small discount stores had chosen not to make an investment in the community. We are not against a full service store, we need several in the north Tulsa community. However, if the same items sold are unhealthy if sold in a small discount store, than perhaps you can explain to us why they are healthier if sold in a full service store.

A moratorium in north Tulsa would result in a suspension of business development activity (stores, etc.) in certain areas of north Tulsa.

A moratorium in Tulsa would not demonstrate that the City is concerned about economic development, building the workforce and healthier communities in the near future.

A moratorium in north Tulsa does not support revitalization plans for the north Tulsa community that residents have been involved in for the past 10 years are more.

Amongst the highest priorities that municipalities should be concerned with is creating jobs, improving the tax base.

A moratorium in north Tulsa does not support the creation of jobs or building wealth in the north Tulsa community.

A moratorium in north Tulsa disrupts the communities ability advocate for the creating and attracting desirable business into the north Tulsa community; a moratorium does not inspire economic growth.
