Welcome to the Greenwood Cultural Center
The Greenwood Cultural Center Is More Than a Building or a Place to Gather
In the heart of Tulsa’s teeming African American community, the Greenwood Cultural Center (GCC) is more than just a building or a gathering place. Our mission is its essence: promoting, preserving, and celebrating African American culture and heritage.
The Greenwood Cultural Center stands as a monument to the scores of pioneers, trailblazers, entrepreneurs, professionals, politicos, and citizens who created a renowned and respected community despite formidable odds.
The Center serves as a marker for the Tulsa community, chronicling where we have been, where we are, and where we are going, through historical offerings, events, and youth programming.
We want to take the opportunity to say, "thank you" for showing empathy and compassion for those who are hurting as we navigate these challenging times of racial inequity and injustice, an investigation into mass grave sites and a renewed demand for reparations for the survivors and descendants on the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. We must support each other, even from a distance. We are committed to being diverse and inclusive, to sharing our history, and working alongside those seeking to heal our communities, however, this journey is ever-evolving and ongoing.
We must listen to one another and act with compassion. We are all different, we come from different places, backgrounds, families and identities; but by working together to embrace and value our differences, we create a stronger and better community.
We look forward to bettering our future together.
