Shades of Truth Theatre & New Heritage Theatre Group presents
World Premiere Staged Reading
By MICHAEL GREEN and ROBERT TYLER
In the early 1900s, land once thought worthless was now teeming with oil. Tulsa, Oklahoma, turns golden almost overnight…it also gives birth to Greenwood, a city within a city, a shining, prosperous, and growing Black City! The future for the citadel of collaboration and black entrepreneurship is bright until the dark clouds of 1919 hover in the distance… if Greenwood is to be protected …they will need a plan!
