Juneteenth celebrations have created division among some Tulsans. Festivities will take place on Greenwood as well as the Brady District this weekend.
The Brady District's history is what is making some angry.
"It wasn't a riot. It was a massacre," said James Johnson.
Johnson's grandmother survived the 1921 Race Riots. She made him promise to never set foot in the Brady District. Johnson said Tate Brady, the man for whom the Brady District is named, was a member of the KKK.
"We've been had, we've been took, we've been hoodwinked, we've been led astray," said Johnson.
Johnson told FOX23 he's upset with Fred Jones, who has agreed to organize Juneteenth events in the Brady District.
"I just want to promote that oneness, that unity," said Jones. "This is not about Tate Brady; this is about one Tulsa, and community unity. Moving forward, Tulsa will be a better place."
Johnson said Jones sold out.
"He did it because they were going to make money and taking money from the Greenwood District," said Johnson.
Juneteenth festivities will take place at the same time in both locations this weekend.
