BLACK WOMEN PIONEERS OF TULSA: “In Memory of Eddie Faye Gates”
Eddie Faye Gates (1934-2021) was a significant Tulsa historian, researcher, and teacher activist
whose research took her all over the world. Her reflections on the history of the transatlantic slave
trade while in England and the Holocaust while in Poland and Israel powerfully shaped her
understanding of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 when she returned to Oklahoma. Her work with
1921 Tulsa Race Massacre survivors preserve the stories of more than 200 people, as well as
information from more than 300 of their descendants. This Women's History Month, we pay homage to
Mrs. Gates by honoring her memory and the memory of Black women in Oklahoma whose work
radically changed the landscape throughout our state and this country. This Real Talk will pay tribute to
the Black women who came before while looking forward to the future. Black women who will take
Tulsa and this state to new destinations. Join us Saturday, March 26, 2022, from 2 pm-3 pm for "Real
Talk: Black Women Pioneers of Tulsa."
Join us Saturday, March 26th at 2:00 pm CST, as we explore food insecurity, it’s societal impact, policy action, and multi-scaled innovative solutions to this ongoing issue.
