What Have We Been Up To This Month...
A few things are in the works as we continue to update and experiment with our exhibitions. We are working with local community members to highlight Sapulpa's strong religious ties in its community. In addition, we had plans to have a Spring Open House this month, but due to weather, we postponed the event to next month. Come see us for our Spring Open House, June 10, 4-6:30PM.
The 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre will be this weekend (May 31-June 1). The History Channel will be airing the much anticipated documentary about the Tulsa Race Massacre, "Tulsa Burning" on May 30th. Contributions from local organizations, leaders, historians, and activists, including the Tulsa Historical Society & Museum, the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation, the Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission and the Historic Vernon A.M.E. Church, and Sapulpa Historical Society, and others.
The Sapulpa Historical Society & Museum were able to work with the documentary, and included an image describing the oil boom of Tulsa (and area). See image below:
