The Griffins

May 31 - June 1

It’s a hot summer in 1921. Alex and Mattie Griffin are successful entrepreneurs on Black Wall Street, a bustling African-American business district in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The planned lynching of a black 19-year-old (Dick Rowland) for allegedly raping a white teen (Sarah Page) in an elevator sparks one of the worst incidents of racial violence in U.S. history. This play by Dr. Rodney L. Clark relates the true events of that time from the perspective of the fictional Griffin family.
