OKLAHOMA CITY, Saturday, June 18, 2022, – To celebrate Juneteenth, OKC Thunder Films’ latest project “Seeds of Greenwood” will be available to stream for free starting Sunday, June 19. The film can be viewed via www.okcthunderfilms.com or at www.deadCenterFilm.org.
A century after the Tulsa Race Massacre, “Seeds of Greenwood” explores how today’s generation is planted and nurtured in the fertile soil of Tulsa Historic Greenwood District. The film follows the birth of the Thunder’s innovative after-school program, Thunder Fellows, and the inspiring journeys of students in the inaugural class. Oklahoma City Thunder and CAA Sports developed the Thunder Fellows concept following the murder of george floyd and just before the 100e tulsa birthday Race massacre.
Located in the Greenwood District, the Thunder Fellows program opens opportunities in sports, entertainment, and technology for Black students in the Tulsa area. Students have access to a tailored data and analytics curriculum, hands-on experiences, mentors, and professional coaching.
The film also includes original music produced by Notis Studios, a Film owned by Oklahoma Black and music production company. Their songs “Greenwood Roads”, “Good Morning”, “Look Out World” and “My Life Be Like” have a strong rhythm and bluesy vibe with compelling lyrics that capture the resilient nature of Greenwood District and the Thunder Fellows Student Pledge. Songs and more include a “Seeds of Greenwood” playlist available for flow and download on Spotify, Apple Music and others services.
