One Tulsa and Hidden Beach Recordings are partnering for a music compilation that will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre and share a unifying message.

A multigenre, multigenerational album, “1921: The Sound of Black Wall Street,” will be released this year and, according to a news release announcing the project, it will speak to the hearts of mankind with melodies and spoken words of healing and restoration after nearly 100 years of silence.

A private listening session featuring artists taking part in the project took place Thursday, April 29 at Lefty’s on Greenwood. Said One Tulsa CEO Fred Jones: “We’ve done our best to cover several genres of music on the project as we salute the resilience of the Tulsa North Community, and the City of Tulsa at large as we look to the 100-year race massacre commemoration and move forward we will continue to do our part for a better Greenwood.”
