Mark Your Calendar: Diversity and Inclusion Walkabout

posted by on

Join the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force and the Social and Hospitality Committee for an afternoon learning about Tulsa’s rich history.  The group will be touring the Historic Greenwood District and Tulsa’s Black Wall Street to educate participants on Tulsa’s diverse background. The tour begins promptly at 11:00am on November 12 at the Gypsy Coffee House on MLK Boulevard.

Kat Kaplan of the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force states, “This event helps further the Task Force’s mission by bringing awareness to Tulsa’s diverse background as well as bringing awareness to injustices against the black community in Tulsa and their ability to rise in adversity.”

The tour will be guided by the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture. The organization, founded in 1995, seeks to educate the public on Tulsa’s rich architectural history. In addition, they seek to preserve Tulsa’s original architecture while also encouraging growth.

Arrive early, grab a coffee, and enjoy the hour-long walking tour.  Reservations for lunch are at Sisserou’s at 12:30pm and registration closes October 31st. The cost of the tour is $10, not including lunch. Space is limited!
