TULSA, Okla. -

The Public Service Company of Oklahoma announced a $500,000 grant for the upcoming Greenwood Rising project.

Greenwood Rising is a project of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Commission and this grant will help ensure world-class facilities and programming for the project.

The grant comes from the AEP Foundation, the charitable arm of the American Electric Power company.

“Valuing diversity and promoting equity are part of our culture and central to our success,” said PSO President Peggy Simmons.  “Building a strong sense of community in our headquarters city is an extension of our core value – service. We’re excited to be part of this historic project that reflects the priorities of PSO and the AEP Foundation.”

The project, set on the corner of Greenwood and Archer in the historic Greenwood District, is set to have a groundbreaking ceremony on August 21.
