TULSA, Okla. — First Baptist Tulsa is opening the "Tulsa Race Massacre Prayer Room" exhibit to the public beginning Monday, Feb. 1.

According to the church, the prayer room provides a place for church and community members to explore the history of the 1921 Tulsa race massacre and to oppose the sin of racism in the world prayerfully.

The church said Phil Armstrong, the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission project manager, helped narrate the prayer room. The room contains six stations, four of which provide an opportunity for prayer. The exhibit will be open through June 1.

The public can visit the exhibit Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Parking is free in the parking lot at 5th Street and Detroit Avenue in the spaces marked "FBC." Visitors can enter the main church doors across from the parking lot.
