Known as Boomtown and T-Town, Tulsa is Oklahoma’s second-largest city and is located near the Arkansas River. Its origins date back to the late 1820s with the forced relocation of the Creek from their ancestral homes in Georgia and Alabama. The city was established in 1882 with the arrival of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad. By 1920, the oil and aviation industries made Tulsa a very prosperous city.

One of the city’s and the country’s saddest days occurred in 1921 with the [Tulsa race massacre]. During an 18-hour period, a prosperous Black neighborhood known as America’s Black Wall Street was destroyed during a race massacre. This successful community had been built by Black entrepreneurship to benefit Black people. Hundreds of Greenwood residents lost their lives, with homes, businesses and a community destroyed.

Today, Tulsa is home to one of Lonely Planet’s “10 historic black landmarks to visit in the USA” and the first monument on National Geographic’s list of “6 essential American monuments. The city is also considered one of the nation’s most prominent destinations for Black history and culture. The city is proud of its art deco architecture, boasts one of the best U.S. parks, and has a rich music history. The town is viewed by many as a frontrunner of the US remote worker hubs, offering remote workers $10,000 to relocate to Tulsa.
