This ride will weave a route back and forth across the various highways that bisect North Tulsa from the rest of the city as a way of coming to terms with the impact of eminent domain and urban renewal efforts in Tulsa at large.
Departing from Guthrie Green, this approximate 8-mile loop will navigate some of the major highways that help create the north end of the Inner Dispersal Loop (IDL) including I-244 and 75, and brush up against the Tisdale Parkway and HWY 412. In addition to these massive infrastructure projects, this ride will also consider the UCAT Campus Corridor as a defining feature of the physical landscape of North Tulsa.
Along this casual, group-oriented bike ride, participants will stop at various locations to hear historical perspectives from local scholars and business leaders, culminating in a sound art installation and film projection underneath a highway overpass. Historian and author, Carlos Moreno, will be joining us to share his insight into the rebuilding of Greenwood. His book, The Victory of Greenwood, launches on June 2nd. You won't want to miss what he has to share! Learn more here, https://shows.acast.com/pod-4-good/episodes/carlos-moreno-the-victory-of-greenwood-and-telling-the-full-
