How do we confront the most frightening parts of our history and still manage to take away a sense of hope? As we learn more about the tragic events of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and its lasting effects, what will we uncover going forward? Using a mixture of drama, comedy, and interactive elements, Tulsa playwrights Obum Ukabam and Bailey James have teamed up to tell stories that have been seldom heard and have difficult conversations to explore our views on “each other” and they continue to evolve. Reflections looks to both the past and present to help mold the future of how we think and communicate about our differences and what makes us truly see past the surface.
