Congratulations to BTW graduate Julius Pegues on being recognized by the Tulsa Press Club as one of its 2016 Headliners!

What Julius Pegues knew about the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot came directly from those who lived through it.

“I worked for my two uncles. They built houses out in north Tulsa,” Pegues said. “We would talk all the time about it. I knew more about the riot than the average person did.”
