Story

The Greenwood Cultural Center

The Greenwood Cultural Center is a nonprofit organization operating out of the historic Greenwood district in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The mission of the Greenwood Cultural Center is "to preserve African-American heritage and promote positive images of the African-American community by providing educational and cultural experiences; promoting intercultural exchange; and encouraging cultural tourism". The organization achieves its mission by keeping the memory of the Black Wall Street era alive through their exhibits on the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre before and after. The organization also provides many programs for Tulsa youth. We highly advise that you visit the Greenwood Cultural Center's website to learn more about the organization and its programs. 

Why LXA is Supporting the Greenwood Cultural Center

We, the Epsilon Upsilon Zeta chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha, are very aware of the current situation in our country with racial inequality, and we do not want to be complicit any longer. We have a platform that reaches far due to our current members and alumni. We want to use our platform to support the black communities here in our own city. The Greenwood Cultural Center is a beacon of the racial past in Tulsa. By detailing the rise, fall, and rebirth of Black Wall Street, the Greenwood Cultural Center is able to show positive images of the past black Tulsa community while inspiring the future community of Tulsa as a whole. This is why we are supporting the Greenwood Cultural Center.

Why You Should Donate

All of the money that we will raise will go directly to the Greenwood Cultural Center. The organization will then use it in its operating budget and for the programs they provide for Tulsa youth. Your donation is greatly appreciated. Once you donate, please feel free to share this link with other friends and family. Thank you so much!!!
