fabricating the pathway to hope

Tulsa, Oklahoma


To start a conversation about the divided and debilitated Greenwood District, a once-prosperous black neighborhood, community leaders and non-profits partnered to create an interpretive, neighborhood walking trail—the Pathway to Hope. They asked Britten, Inc. to produce custom banners and framing hardware to line the pathway and guide the public through the district’s uniquely tragic history.


Ranging in size from 3’ X 4’ to 12’ X 26’, Britten’s print team fabricated 20 murals featuring iconic figures and architectural landmarks from the area. Durable, 15-ounce front-lit vinyl combined with UV-resistant ink ensured that the banners would withstand fading. After framing each print in BannerStretch™ hardware, installers hung them along the pathway for residents and visitors to learn from and admire.


“It almost feels as if you’re not in a blighted place that was destroyed,” Race Massacre Centennial Commission Project Director, Phil Armstrong, told Tulsa’s KOTV’s News On 6. “You’re in a renaissance place and reminded how beautiful this place was for black citizens that called this home.”
