TALK OF GREENWOOD
Dr. Jerry Goodwin, The Oklahoma Eagle
The Greenwood Chamber of Commerce in partnership with several other sponsors is hosting the lighting of Black Wall Street with activities throughout the day. On Nov. 25, the holiday market will be open from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m., and the Christmas lighting and concert will begin from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
According to a press release, during the day, the community is encouraged to support and to shop with the area businesses in addition to patronizing a diverse array of vendors offering unique and quality goods. Families are invited to indulge in a day of shopping, discovering local businesses, and supporting the community.
In the evening, the block will be lighted “with a dazzling display,” and the sounds of Christmas, “fostering community spirit,” will be shared. An outdoor concert is planned with talented artists. Featured artists to perform are Tony Mason and Valarie Harding who will be “bringing warmth and cheer to the heart of Greenwood.”
Additionally, a toy giveaway will be sponsored for the children in attendance.
Additional sponsors of the program are Original Black Wall Street Merchant Marketplace, The Ambassador Project International / Mastone Productions, and Greenwood Main Street.
