Opinion: In Tulsa, this congregation of ‘wounded healers’ never gives up

Historic Vernon AME Church has been at the heart of the Greenwood District of Tulsa since long before the horrific events for which Greenwood is best known. The congregation dates back to 1905 and the church — though it was torn down and rebuilt in 1914, before being burned during the horrific violence on May 31 and June 1, 1921 — has been at its present site at 307 N. Greenwood Avenue since 1908.
