An Evening With Fire in Little Africa

April 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

7-9 p.m. Saturday, April 24
Main Building | North Lawn
Free tickets required. Reservations available April 10.

Join us for an evening of music and memory featuring hip-hop project Fire in Little Africa and Greenwood Art Project’s mobile exhibition, the G.A.P. Van. Organized by the Woody Guthrie Center and Bob Dylan Center in collaboration with the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission, Fire in Little Africa brings together top rappers, singers, musicians and visual artists in Oklahoma to commemorate the centennial of the 1921 Massacre and introduce Tulsa’s hip-hop culture to a global audience. The G.A.P. Van is a multi-use, collaborative, mobile art exhibition, workshop space and poster project engaging Oklahoma residents to create posters that share their stories and reflect their voices in collaboration with PBS American Portrait. Come participate in this powerful, healing approach to commemorating the Tulsa Massacre and the history of the Greenwood neighborhood. The Greenwood Art Project is part of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge. This program will contain mature content.

COVID Protocols: Reservations are required for lawn seating. Each reservation is good for one designated 8-foot circle on our North Lawn. Parties of up to four guests may share one circle. Please help us ensure social distancing by reserving additional circles for parties larger than four. Reservations will be available two weeks before the concert.
