BLACK WALL STREET / GREENWOOD

Commemorative Mosaic Kit

 About the Kit

This heartfelt stained glass mosaic kit aims to celebrate the achievements and entrepreneurial spirit of the “Black Wall Street” and Greenwood communities of Tulsa, Oklahoma while also commemorating the lives and sacrifices of its residents over the last 100 years.

A portion of the proceeds will be gifted to support the uplifting and preservation of these historic communities.

Mosaics are like communities in that the whole is made up of many smaller integral pieces. Through its carefully crafted design and symbolism, the finished mosaic is a nod to the past and to the hopes for the future.

Glass Recycling + Giving Back

The kit contains excess glass pieces, which we encourage you to return. The re-purposed glass will contribute to larger projects featuring this mosaic design which will then be gifted to individuals or organizations associated with the Greenwood district.
