About This Event

Join us for a docent-led tour to get a fresh look into the Museum's featured object. At each of these 15-minute talks visitors will hear incredibly big stories about a big object.

About this Program:  During this program we will look at a small object, a charred penny from the Tulsa Race Massacre in 1921, that tells a big story.  This penny laid among the charred remains of the once vibrant all-black enclave of Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Converse with a museum docent and reflect on the resiliency of African Americans in making places for themselves and overcoming the challenges they faced.
