Autumn Brown (Oklahoma Oral History Research Program)
This paper explores art, activism, and education in Tulsa, Oklahoma. With programs such as the Tulsa Artists Fellowship and Tulsa Remote, artists from around the country are flocking to Tulsa as the city rebrands itself as an epicenter for art & culture in the country. Black and Brown artists in North Tulsa are using their creative expression to awaken the sociopolitical consciousness throughout “The Town,” while also sparking the imagination. This oral history collection aims at preserving Tulsa’s art scene for future studies on art, activism, and education.
