Native American Cultural Immersion trip — Day 4


Our Great Plains Conference group learned more about the 1921 Tulsa race massacre, which wiped out lives, businesses and livelihoods of African Americans living in the Greenwood area of that Oklahoma town. We shouldered the heavy thoughts of people being shot at and even bombed from above by airplanes dropping incendiary devices.

We found hope by visiting Vernon African Methodist Episcopal Church, which was damaged but survived the fires. And we concluded our day by enjoying Choctaw food and hearing traditional hymns at Mary Lee Clark United Methodist Church, one of the churches that has helped form the faith of Bishop David Wilson over the years.
