Workshop Description:

This course examines the history of Tulsa’s Greenwood District from it’s pre-statehood beginnings to its many renaissances, including the present day. Coined “Black Wall Street” by educator and historian Booker T. Washington, Greenwood was the most economically vibrant Black community in the United States for years, in spite of Oklahoma’s brutal segregation laws. Though that entrenched racial divide continues to exist, Black Wall Street is thriving once again.

Guest lecturers from Black community leaders and field trips to significant landmarks will reinforce classroom learning. The course will culminate with community based projects that explore Greenwood then and now. There were many significant factors that contributed to both its rise and destruction.

Denim Day | Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Denim Day | Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Event Date: 
Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 12:00am to 11:45pm
Event Details: 

Show Support on Denim Day
Denim Day is Wednesday, April 28, 2021. OSU-Tulsa students, faculty and staff are encouraged to wear jeans and show your support.

If you plan to wear jeans, please obtain a support sticker at North Hall 103 (OSU-Tulsa Campus Life).
 
The Denim Day campaign began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual harassment, abuse, assault and rape.

OSU takes acts of sexual harassment, which include sexual violence, extremely seriously and believes that 1 victim is 2 many. Please visit our Tulsa 1is2MANY page for more information on the university response, resources, and remedies to sexual violence. 

12:00am to 11:45pm
