The area around Greenwood was called The Black Wall Street before the 1921 Race Riot! Considering the state denied blacks deserved reparations for what they suffered during the Race Riot to provide a name other than Brady seems only just! I attended the first meeting at the Greenwood Cultural Center concerning Mr. Brady! He was a decent business man, but he gets a super F in human rights, he did not view Blacks as part of the human race! He wasn't just a racist Klan leader, he also was known for torturing Union members that were antiwar and "According to 17 members of this union it was Tate Brady that actually applied the boiling tar to their backs, which had been whipped.” Allowing this mans name to represent this area that he helped to destroy to me is the equivalent of a Swastika still being the symbol of Germany. History may show there were some positive things Hitler was involved in but his massive human rights violations did not warrant keeping the Third Rite Symbol. It is time to allow this area of Tulsa to Heal! It is time for the city of Tulsa to demonstrate that this city does not represent "hatred and human rights violation based on racism" anymore! I vote for the Greenwood Arts District! If not then surely there are some prominent black Tulsans that were part of the Black Wall Street that the city could name the district after! Brady will still be in the history books as the founder of Tulsa!"
