Tulsa Public Schools is hosting the second in a series of five community gatherings designed to provide a space for Tulsans to learn about a variety of issues which affect diversity, justice, and acceptance. Exploring Equity: Greenwood and Black Wall Street will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 5:30 p.m. in the Selman Room at the Education Service Center (3027 S. New Haven Ave. in Tulsa).

Exploring Equity: Greenwood and Black Wall Street will include a presentation by author Hannibal B. Johnson that explores the rich history, senseless destruction, and rise and renaissance of one of America's premiere black entrepreneurial havens.

The agenda for the evening is as follows:

These community conversations will be guided by Tulsa leader, advocate, and author Hannibal B. Johnson and will take place monthly through the end of the school year.
