Tulsa Chautauqua: The Modern Age: Moving Forward from World War I
Jun 05, 2018 to Jun 09, 2018
2445 S Peoria Ave
Come to Tulsa Chautauqua: The Modern Age: Moving Forward from World War I, held on the grounds of the Tulsa Historical Society, to go behind the scenes of the end of the Great War. Each night, a different scholar gives a presentation in character followed by a Q&A session from the audience, first in character, then as a scholar. The 2018 characters are General “Black Jack” Pershing, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Acee Blue Eagle, Josephine Baker and Ernest Hemingway.
During the day, there are workshops led by a different scholar about a topic pertaining to either his character or some facet of the historical time frame of his character. Workshop-goers frequently bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy during the short break between workshops.
Local musicians, as well as the winner of the student Chautauquan contest, usually entertain the audience briefly before each evening's performance. A variety of snacks will be available for purchase. Make an evening of it and enjoy the ambiance of a summer night while learning about a fascinating time in history.
