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. We must support each other, even from a distance. We are committed to being diverse and inclusive, 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 consider you an ally in this ongoing process and look forward to bettering our future together.
