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.
