Officials with the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission have canceled the Remember & Rise event scheduled for Monday, May 31.
“Due to unexpected circumstances with entertainers and speakers, the Centennial Commission is unable to fulfill our high expectations for Monday afternoon’s commemoration event and has determined not to move forward with the event at this time. We have hopes to reschedule later in this 100th commemorative year. We apologize for the disappointment and any inconvenience caused to ticket holders; if rescheduled ticket holders will be notified first.”
John Legend and Stacy Abrams were scheduled to headline the event which was to be nationally televised.
The Candlelight Vigil at Greenwood and Archer Monday night will continue as scheduled according to officials.
