HEALING A PAST, BUILDING A FUTURE

Bartlesville, OK   |  http://www.1256movement.org

Mission

The 1256 Movement promotes homebuilding in Tulsa, OK for Black families as a reparation for destruction of 1,256 homes in Greenwood.

Notes from the nonprofit

Reparations is not a "popular" topic. People do not want to pay for what they did not do. Continuing to claim that racism did not or does not exist is a path of cyclical racial trauma and harm by a 400 year old white supremacist system that has been operating in the United States. Massacres did not only happen in a few places like Tulsa, Oklahoma. There are 250 documented massacres of Black communities in the United States, and this does not include massacres and injustices to Native Americans, Japanese Americans, and Mexican immigrants. Honestly, ethically, and justly facing the past and asking ourselves what we each can do in our communities is a step forward each one of us can take.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We aim to address racial trauma in our community specifically related to the injustice done in 1921 when 1,256 family homes of Black people were burned to the ground by white mobs. No insurance claims were paid because white city officials, courts, and some churches colluded to restrict any payments, saying the Black community "rioted." The truth is that the Black community defended itself against yet another attack and lynching while white mobs reigned down bullets and bombs with the support of local police, inaction of the fire department and state guard taking Black prisoners, leaving the Greenwood community vulnerable to full on attack and destruction. In addition to homes, 100 businesses were destroyed along with two dozen churches, a library, hospital, and school. As many as 300 people, mostly Black people, lost their lives in one day. We aim to address the truth of the massacre and repair living history in our community through private organization reparations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1256 Movement aims to accomplish paying $10,000 reparation payments to 1,256 Black families between 2020 and 2030, a total of 12.56 million dollars.

The strategy for paying reparations is for 1256 donors to impact Black homeowners and Black owned business residential contractors by conveying up to $10,000 per family home. Homes ready for renovation or individuals and families seeking to build a new home will be considered through a application process at 1256movement.org/application.

The board is specifically skilled in home construction, sales, and neighborhood development.

In 2020-21 six reparations were conveyed and in 2021-22 eight reparations have been conveyed.
