Lankford Will Hold Community Conversation at Tulsa’s Historic Big 10 Ballroom Thursday

It sounds more like a celebration than a town hall meeting for U.S. Senator James Lankford on Thursday. He is hosting a “community conversation” at Tulsa’s Historic Big 10 Ballroom which has been undergoing a renovation. The Big 10 Ballroom was a nationally known performance venue for African-American artists not welcome at mainstream white jazz clubs and venues.

Once the renovations are complete, the Big 10 Ballroom will be home to A Pocket Full of Home Community Revitalization Center.

During Thursday evening’s program Lankford will speak about the 1921 Tulsa Race Riots, the revitalization of the community and take questions from the audience. Joining Lankford with remarks of their own will be Oklahoma Senator Kevin Matthews, Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum and Rep. Regina Goodwin. A Pocket Full of Hope youth participants and other musicians will perform during the celebration.
