Tulsa, OK – After a decade of work, a park memorializing survivors of the 1921 race riot and the rebuilding of Greenwood after is dedicated. The John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park is named after the renowned historian and Tulsa Washington high-school graduate. John W. Franklin is his son. He was in Tulsa for the dedication and will be Rich Fisher's guest tomorrow on Studio Tulsa.
Phase two of the project will include a reconciliation center on the land near Detroit Avenue and Greenwood where the riot took place.
