We’re thrilled to share with you a preview of “Black Wall Street: Stories of Greenwood,” the new film directed by Kevin D. Johnson, Jr. with music by Marcus Shelby and with executive producer Eva Paterson. The film will premiere at the Equal Justice Society virtual annual event on September 20, 2021. Get your tickets!
The film is comprised of three short stories. The Black excellence that infuriated the unevolved white residents of Tulsa along with the massacre will be brought to life with an ensemble cast playing different characters in each of the stories.
EJS is mindful that attacks on the bodies of people of color continue into the 21st century as we have witnessed and denounced attacks on our AAPI and Latinx friends and allies. We are all in this together.
Marcus Shelby and Kevin D. Johnson, Jr., will speak on a panel moderated by EJS’s Meher Dhaliwal following the film screening. They will discuss their respective methods of creating the film and music, as well as share their muses that inspire their creativity.
