Greenwood Avenue: (produced by Osahon Tongo)
"Greenwood Avenue" is a virtual reality experience, created by Ayana Baraka, about a 14-year-old Black girl who lives in the Greenwood District, also known as Black Wall Street, during the 1920s. This scripted five-part series follows her coming of age story while revealing the history of Black Wall Street and the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. Over the course of two days, three hundred African-Americans were killed and thousands of Black-owned homes and Black-owned businesses were burned to the ground in the spring of 1921 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Conversations with the late Dr. Olivia J. Hooker, one of the last known survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre, informed the script. "Greenwood Avenue" is not your typical thrill-based virtual reality experience. It is a story that transports you. It takes you back in time to a place that no longer exists. It introduces you to a community and the great American entrepreneurs of our past that we relish today. History organically unfolds because love is at the heart of this story. "Greenwood Avenue" is grounded authentically in the Greenwood District. Filmed in Tulsa, Oklahoma-on the last remaining block of Black Wall Street—Greenwood Avenue. With support from the community and local organizations like the Greenwood Cultural Center, the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission, and the John Hope Center for Reconciliation. "Greenwood Avenue" hired a cast and crew of native Tulsans, many of which had ancestors that either survived through or perished during the massacre.
