And Then Came A Highway

This is a great place to add a tagline.

The obsession began when oil, black gold, was discovered in Indian Teritory. The Dawes Commission was created to wrestle millions of acres of land out of the hands of Native Americans and Blacks, most whose families had been settled in the area for nearly a century. A highway and the promise of redeveloping GREENWOOD, NORTH TULSA's major commercial district, into a more beautiful, more modern space, instead, became the second attempt at erasing NORTH TULSA, the historic town/community annexed by the city of Tulsa in 1904, from the map.  TU, OSU-Tulsa, and TCCL opened the month with Don Thompson, the globally renowned photographer, and acclaimed writer Victor Luckerson  discussing how a highway and government polices broke those promises, breaking GREENWOOD.

FRIDAY YOUNG FILMMAKERS SERIES

IMG_20240112_172226335_edited.png

Filmmaker DENNIS DELAMAR & Rudisill RL Teen Librarian ADRIENNE TEAGUE gEAR uP FOR aNOTHER ePISODE OF YOUNG FILMMAKERS

YOUNG FILMAKERS SERIES is not a new Taylor Sheridan or Ava Duvernay creation about teens wrangling the Southwest, it's Rudisill Regional Library's new series of hour and a half workshops teaching teens, ages 12-18, how to make their own films.  

Adrienne Teague, Rudisill RL's brilliant teen librarian and Dennis Delamar, director, producer and the genius behind the Greenwood Film Festival are taking young filmmakers from storyboarding to final edits with a host of special guests covering every facet of film production.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC:

JAN 12 & 26  FEB 2 &16  MAR 8 & 29

APR 12 & 26    All Dates: 4-5:30p

On January 12, Teague and Delmar introduced basic concepts around storytelling, storytelling on film and the work and people needed to bring those stories to life on screen. Delamar zoomed in from the west coast explaining who does what in a film crew.

Teens were challenged to choose writer, director, production and other roles...and to return last week (FRI 2/02) each with their own stories.

Missed the first 2 Fridays, no worries. There's a seat for you....and your story for day 3 doesn't have to be that drawn out (that's this week's workshop)...it could be, for instance..."I like ice cream."

AMERICAN FICTION, the new film by director CORD JEFFERSON is the digital version of  writer/director Stella Meghie's hilarious tragedy JEAN OF THE JONES' title character asking fellow writers if every story about Black life has to be about either "Slavery or a man in a dress?"kWord on the street...actor JEFFREY WRIGHT could win an Oscar for his performanance answering that question.

my architecture bucket list

Long berfore the "Bucket List" became a thing and even longer before 2 years of architecture school, I often worked 3 jobs at a time, worked a job 9 days on 1 day off...for years...in short, work. work endless work.  And I thought, I've got to get a goal...something I could actually do that didn't require total exhaustion. I hadn't become the paleontogist I said I wanted to be as a kid or the archtect I wanted to be as a teen.  CHEESECAKE.

I chose Cheesecake. My goal in life became to eat the largest varieties of Cheesecake in the world. It seemed doable...and I'm still at it.

And still dreaming of finishing architecture school. So, my archtecture inspiration:

SIR NORMAN FOSTER

Love THE GHERKIN and the POMPIDOU CENTER, but, it's mainly his talks on the power of architecture.

CENTRE POMPIDOU

Paris. France

DAVID ADJAYE

He's done the impossible. 

THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND  CULTURE

Washington DC. USA

ZAHA HADID

Any and every building by ZAHA HADID. How can you bat 1,000? It was a thrill to see her model for the planned Price Tower project.

GUANGZHOU OPERA HOUSE

Guangzhou. China

Honestly, I've probably only managed to find and eat maybe 20 different kinds of Cheesecake. Now I just think of sand dunes in Namibia or Petra in Jordan. So, if I had to narrow it to one.. (click the circle)

One of hundreds of the coolest facts you'll read in ROXANNE DUNBAR-ORTIZ' sweeping history of the Americas, in general, and the United States, in particular, is that the highways you drive to visit family at Christmas are the same trading routes and trails first paved by Native nations thousands of years ago.

In short, while we were gushing over Egyptian culture, we've had hundreds of centuries of our own pyramids, kings and queens, and gold to celebrate.  So much gold, in fact, it's probaoly the reason your name doesn't end in an "X," an "L" or both.
