The Greenwood Centennial Scholars Fund

The Greenwood Centennial Scholars Fund
 

Acknowledges the Resilience of the Greenwood Neighborhood in Tulsa by Creating 100 Greenwood Project Scholars in the 100th Anniversary Year of the Tulsa Race Massacre 



The Greenwood Project introduces Black and Latinx high school and college students to careers in financial services. 


We are launching the Greenwood Centennial Scholars Fund to create 100 Greenwood Project Scholars in the 100th Anniversary year of the Tulsa Race Massacre which destroyed the Greenwood neighborhood in that city in 1921. The name “Greenwood Project” was chosen because founders Bevon and Elois Joseph wanted our scholars to carry on the legacy, spirit and resilience of the people of Greenwood.  


The Greenwood neighborhood in Tulsa was known as “The Black Wall Street” for its prosperity. The neighborhood had Black lawyers, doctors, hospitals, hotels, grocery stores, a movie theater, etc. 


It was all destroyed after a white mob burned it to the ground after erroneously believing that a Black man had assaulted a white woman. We want the Fund to acknowledge the resilience of the people who built Greenwood back to prosperity. 


Our programs cost us $12,000 per college student and $5,000 per high school student. With this fund, we hope to raise $1.2 million and allow 100 students to participate in our programs.


Each of our students remind us that there is no lack of talent, just a lack of opportunity and Greenwood Project exists to close that gap.
