Tri-City Collection Mentioned in the New York Times

Excerpt

"The exhibition, “From the Limitations of Now,” is accompanied by a constellation of community engagement projects with Black-led organizations, Tri-City Collective, Fulton Street Books, and Silhouette — a sneaker shop in Greenwood, or Black Wall Street as it is better known.


The idea for the exhibition originated with Quraysh Ali Lansana, a Tulsa-based author and academic who is a founding member of the education group the Tri-City Collective. In 2019, he called on the Philbrook — which is in Tulsa’s wealthy, white South Side — to mark the centennial.


Mr. Lansana said it was important to him, and to Black Tulsa, for institutions on the South Side to acknowledge the day in 1921 when white mobs burned down Black Wall Street."
