Read time: 1 minute:
Local Projects has partnered with the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission to create Greenwood Rising, a new museum celebrating the remarkable and resilient story of Tulsa's historic Greenwood District known as Black Wall Street.

The Museum's final space focuses on restorative justice and contemporary issues of anti-Blackness, and visitors are invited to make a personal "Community Commitment" toward reconciliation. Screens in the space will rotate between these commitments, examples include:

"I commit to reading at least one book by a BIPOC author for every white author"

"I commit to buy back Black debt"

"I commit to recruiting and hiring black talent"

Please add your commitment here,so we can include it in the Museum in advance of the opening!

Please note that your commitment can be submitted anonymously, that it may be minimally edited for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or formatting, and that by submitting you give the Greenwood Rising Museum and its affiliates permission to use your submission as they see fit.

Thank you for participating, and thank you for taking action today and every day, as we work towards a more equitable and empathetic future.

— The Greenwood Rising team
