A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Rev. Cynthia Landrum.

In his poem “Silenced Cries” James Coburn writes about the 1921 Tulsa Massacre and the racially motivated destruction of the Greenwood area, known as “Black Wall Street”. He says ” What do I know but clouds of smoke once rose where memory presses green land.” On this, the 100th anniversary of the massacre, we will tell the rarely heard story of this event and reflect on the work we are called to do to end racism in our country.
