Parish Gallery: Leslee Stradford "The Night Tulsa Died"
August 16th, 2011 at 12:41 PM | Tel: 202.944.2310
Showing through Tuesday, August 16, Parish Gallery (1054 31st Street, NW) proudly presents Leslee Stradford's "The Night Tulsa Died: Black Wall Street Massacre 1921". A descendant of the victims in "The Tulsa Race Riot 1921," Leslee Stradford vividly conveys the social, cultural and historical story of the massacre confined to the racially segregated Greenwood neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma on May 31, 1921. Stradford's style, sometimes figurative, sometimes abstract and sometimes both, uses new technology and research to create digital images, painted canvases and silks. Primarily representing, but not exclusively, contemporary visual artists of significance from Africa and the African Diaspora, you can view this artistic display of history and the spirit of social preservation and regeneration in the Parrish Gallery showroom. 202.944.2310
