Exploring Greenwood’s History - Dr. Brandy Thomas Wells, Nicki Hammack and Brett Smith
Dr. Brandy Thomas Wells, a professor in OSU’s Department of History, is turning her students into history detectives through research projects centered on Tulsa’s Greenwood District. In this episode of the Pokes PodCAS, we talk with Wells and two of her Oklahoma History students, Nicki Hammack and Brett Smith, about their work expanding what we know about residents of Black Wall Street. A collection of histories is currently available at blackwallstreetwomen.com, a project started by Wells and contributed to annually by her students.
This episode was recorded on OSU-Stillwater’s campus. It was hosted by CAS marketing and communications manager, Elizabeth Gosney, with editing and mixing by Jason Wallace.
