Mount Sinai Baptist Church Will Host Author Talk On Tulsa’s Greenwood District

By

 

Author Victor Luckerson will be at Mount Sinai Baptist Church in Dallas on July 30 to discuss his new book, Built from the Fire: The Epic Story of Tulsa’s Greenwood District, America’s Black Wall Street. The free event will be from 3 to 5 p.m. at the church, 6819 Lake June Road.

KDAF-TV broadcast journalist Yolonda Williams will lead the discussion. She is the host of CW 33′s Fun on the Run, which airs from 4 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Built from the Fire delves into the history of the storied neighborhood, whose residents have had to deal with racism, police corruption, backlash to desegregation and other challenges.

Luckerson is a journalist and author based in Tulsa whose work is focused on shining a light on neglected Black history. He is a former staff writer at The Ringer and business reporter for Timemagazine, and his writing and research have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Wired and Smithsonian. He was nominated for a National Magazine Award for his reporting in Time on the 1923 Rosewood Massacre in Florida. He also manages an email newsletter about under-explored aspects of Black history called Run It Back.
