Black Wall Street: A Case for Reparations

February 15 – April 23, 2022

Curated by Megan C. Austin, Director, University Galleries

Black Wall Street: A Case for Reparations is Kojo’s ongoing series of large-scale paintings that capture the imagined lives of Black professionals in the Greenwood District before the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. The community was dubbed “Black Wall Street” for its thriving culture and wealth in spite of strong segregation laws. The portraits present a spiritually uplifting dedication to the people who called Greenwood their home over a century ago. The exhibition is a sanctuary and homage to Black Americans through a reimagining of past lives.
