Fire in Little Africa

Fire in Little Africa

We celebrate the release of Fire in Little Africa‘s album release on May 28 with spotlight cases in the Woody Today section of the Woody Guthrie Center gallery. The three cases of items commemorate the recording of the multi-media project in March 2020 at the Greenwood Cultural Center and Skyline Mansion, the partnership with Motown Records/Black Forum, and the women of FILA. The cases and signage feature original artwork by Antionio Andrews (Dialtone) and videos of the Fire in Little Africa project. Framed photos of the 60 Tulsa hip-hop artists who are part of the project are featured on a wall in the main gallery, and original artwork by Dialtone and his students is on display in the entry of the museum. The story continues in the special exhibit gallery with an original wall mural, photos, and memorabilia from Fire in Little Africa as part of the GRAMMY Museum’s Songs of Conscience, Sounds of Freedom exhibit.
