Our name honors the prosperous community of Greenwood destroyed in 1921 in Oklahoma’s Tulsa Race Massacre.  Known as “Black Wall Street,” the neighborhood had thriving restaurants, schools, hotels, grocery stores, movie theaters, and churches.  The Tulsa race massacre took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents, some of them deputized and given weapons by city officials, destroyed homes and businesses, and murdered over 300 Black residents. 

The name “Greenwood Project” was chosen for our Scholars to carry on the legacy, spirit, and resilience of the people who created the self-sustaining Greenwood community so many years ago.
