TULSA PUBLIC SCHOOLS GRADUATION 2016 @ THE MABEE CENTER [ ORU]

May

in North Tulsa is PROM and GRADUATION...and as an 8 year old told

me yesterday, May 17 is the most important day of the year. Birthday? Your mom’s birthday? Graduation? She’s in 3rd grade...how could I guess “graduation?” And how could I not know May 17 is THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL. When my mother, O’Delle Tipton, was in 3rd grade, May was all about something called the Maypole at DUNBAR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. Something so memorable and so delightful that she talked about the sunlight and the ribbons and the birds and the blossoms on the trees and the girls in white dresses and the boys in tailored suits every May, well into her 90s. This issue of NORTH TULSA magazine, as they all have been, is dedicated to my parents. My dad, Harold Clardy, and my mom, who I realized, when she turned 90, was as old or older than almost every building, organization, business...and person in Tulsa. She was born when the city was as young and, probably, as anxious...and excited... about what the future might bring as are many of the students who’ll graduate from Langston, ORU, OSU, OU, Phillips TS, RSU, Spartan, TCC, TICAS, Tulsa Tech and TU this May.

Graduate and begin careers, buy homes and build families, of course, in their own ways, but, hopefully, as my parents did...in Oklahoma. To moms everywhere, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY…dads...HAPPY FATHER’S DAY...everyday. To all grads Congrats! And to all our readers, ENJOY SUMMER! Don’t miss MAYFEST, DRUMFEST, Juneteenth...the TULSA TOUGH...and get to a Rodeo! Oklahoma’s going to the polls...Vote, June 28. Happy 4th of July! The BARBER CUTOFF is back in August...and mark your calendars for SEPT 9...MCLAIN’S HOMECOMING is early this year...BRAVES

@ TITANS...as all of TPS joins together to fight cancer.

Health fair, parade...and music legend TOBY KEITH!!!!!!!..see you in September.

From Removal to Rebirth: The Cherokee Nation in Indian Territory I lived in New York for years and never visited any of its fun, touristy landmarks...until... my [OU] college roommate visited. I was working...there was never time. Without her visit, I’d have never taken the Staten Island Ferry and never climbed to the top of the Statue of Liberty or seen the sparkling jewel-box, Manhattan, from the top of the Empire State Building. I suspect many of us are missing life in Tulsa everyday in just the same way. If you live in North Tulsa...the greatest museum of art and artifacts of the American west sits in your own backyard. Gilcrease Museum of Art is magnificent...majestic...perfect. If you haven’t visited since you loaded the yellow bus for those childhood trips in elementary school, you’ll be blown away. You’ll find changes to the grounds, the buildings, the collection...breathtaking. The programming is daily and informative and fun. Last month, Steven Inskeep, host of National Public Radio’s Morning Edition and author of the book Jacksonland about President Andrew Jackson’s relentless efforts to dispossess the Cherokee of their homeland, was the keynote speaker at the symposium From Removal to Rebirth: The Cherokee Nation in Indian Territory, held at the new Helmerich Center for American Research at Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa on April 22-23, 2016. You may have missed nationally known scholars who have specialized in the study of Cherokee history present findings of recent research, but, you can still get a copy of Steven Inskeep’s excellent book, Jacksonland...and visit Gilcrease.

3 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES


This TU graphic design student (left) was still undecided the night the DOWNTOWN TULSA skyline was electric with excitement as thousands clamored to hear Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, streets surrounding the Cox Convention Center flooded with Americans from all over the nation. An estimated crowd of 800 hundred filed into BTW HS on a sunny Saturday afternoon to hear former US President Bill Clinton represent former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Could North Tulsa-born former Tulsa County Commissioner Wilbert Collins have imagined his triumphant expansion of Tulsa’s Expo Square would host Texas Senator Ted Cruz’ presidential campaign stop in the world’s first oil capitol?


Page 120

BERNIE SANDERS told an overflow crowd in TULSA the week before the Oklahoma Primary that his campaign stands on the shoulders of THE PEOPLE. Sanders thanked Tulsa and told Oklahomans “what we are about is making a political revolution and Oklahoma can help us move in that direction.” The Sanders mania that filled to the gills a room designed to hold 9,000 in Tulsa’s Cox Business Center during the middle of the week on a Wednesday night included a self described “Arkansaniac” (a Seattle transport to Fayetteville, Arkansas), recent OU grads from Norman and supporters from the city the Pew Research Trust ranks America’s second most “conservative”...Oklahoma City.


And, maybe no one was more energized by the numbers than the US presidential candidate himself. “When I look out in this crowd,” he said, “I don’t think there’s any way we’re going to lose on Tuesday.” And he did win.

Listen to recent OU grads Meredith Eldridge and Maya Sykes talk about their reactions to Sanders in Tulsa, online at www.northtulsamagazine.com


If it were really true that organization wins elections, there was no doubt Ted Cruz would win Oklahoma. Unlike his major rival, billionaire Donald Trump, whose campaign kicked off with one controversial issue and a website your grandkids could have posted, Texas Senator Ted Cruz traveled to Tulsa’s Expo Square with all the bells, whistles, buttons, & bows and with US


Senator Jim Bridenstine in the crowd, FOX talk show host Glenn Beck as his front-man and signs the size of trees. Most of us born here probably didn’t realize THE DRILLER, the iconic statue celebrating our city’s reign as Oil Capitol of the World, which greets visitors entering Expo Square, is Oklahoma’s state monument...bet the Cruz staff knew.


Here is an inconvenient truth for all other candidates‌ something like 99% of the time Americans simply vote for the name we knew first. And, that gives former First Lady Hillary Clinton, pretty much, all the marbles.

With just former U US Secre


t a few hour’s notice, hundreds of Tulsans gathered at BTW HS early on a fall Saturday morning to hear US President Bill Clinton praise the soon -to-be Democratic frontrunner, former NY Senator and former etary of State, Hillary Clinton, as the only reasonable choice for the next President of the United States.


Mr. Gorbachev… TEAR DOWN THAT WALL

Ronald Reagan

I’M BUILDING THAT WALL…

Donald Trump


Anyone in need of a testing ground with the credentials “looks like America” will find their lab at venerable Booker T . Washington, academically, a top 50 national U.S. high school. The century old public, and now, magnet high school in Tulsa, Oklahoma, fondly known as BTW, hosted former President Bill Clinton early days, before all the primaries and caucuses, as he stood in as a surrogate, championing candidate Hillary Clinton’s 2016 bid for the White House. Were the hundreds on hand at short notice on a sunny Saturday morning listening to the man who will become the nation’s first 1st Husband? In fact, is it unreasonable to expect they were hearing a speech given by a man whose wife will usher in an unprecedented era in the elevation of the status of women and of families. In 2020, will America be different because a woman was President of the United States or simply because four years is a long time to go without a ton of surprises?

BEYOND THE SYMBOLISM C’mon, you’ve said it, thought it or been in a room somewhere, at least once in your life when a discussion about it broke out…”Would there be no more wars if mothers ruled the world?” America seems to be on the brink of testing that hypothesis. Settlers on the plains and prairies made out like bandits under Andrew Jackson. The military industrial complex bloomed like a rose garden under Eisenhower and Truman administrations. There was old Texas before Lyndon Johnson and TEXAS after. A word was minted from big business’ Hollywood connections…Reaganomics. Big oil didn’t suffer under Bush administrations. Bernie Sanders, the former popular Mayor of Burlington, VT, one of the nation’s most successful college towns, has made no bones about it...if he’s the next POTUS, Americans are going to college and college students will be better off when they leave school and he leaves office. You and your children may not have gone to college, but, for generations, your family may very likely have paid a far greater percentage of your income in taxes than anyone else...you’ve helped put millions of Americans and their kids through college. In short, the Sanders campaign has been slow to explain that you’re already paying for everything his opponents tell you can’t be funded...under his watch, apparently, you and your family would actually benefit from it all. New York businessman Donald Trump is in construction. His platform...construction. In contrast to his party’s greatest moment of the last century, Donald Trump is building a wall. But, some leaders take the other tack. In the minority, are the presidents who didn’t dare to shamelessly represent their bases, preferring to leave legacies untarnished, selecting their conflicts of interest more carefully. John Kennedy may have been a great symbol of hope and ethnic and religious pride, but, had to go out of his way to assure a nation he’d be president to all...equally. President Obama may have strengthened his Harvard to Yale to Wall Street cred when the “street cred” ROI needed by urban America, 100% all-in on the POTUS, was, literally, the streets we live on...the built environment. To be fair, he was busy saving the planet from economic ruin and winning back America’s title as heavyweight champion of the world. So, one wonders…if Hillary Clinton is elected the first woman to hold the reins in the nearly 250 year history of a small upstart nation fleeing tyranny, will women benefit beyond the symbolic?

Will families become the apples of America’s eyes again? It’s not like the president’s task would be overburdening. Women and society have already met her more than halfway. African-American women have always worked, always been breadwinners and its’ been four or more full generations since all American women began experiencing wider options, add in spiraling divorce rates, and the new-necessity…the two-income household…questions are long outdated on competency, on opportunities for women to join the workforce and ability to head families. The ship is in mid-ocean. Can a Clinton presidency right the ship? Thousands of Americans have personal fortunes larger each, individually, than the GDPs of some nations. Nearly all of them are men. Women own top money-making businesses, even in the world’s largest economies, only keeping pace with male counterparts, in percentages slightly higher today than, perhaps, in the Renaissance...and your next door neighbor, if he is a man, very likely draws more in salary per year, working 9-5 at his cubicle (as an employee) than the average womanowned business in the United States. So, here are the questions. Under a Clinton administration, will there be a Marshall Plan for women? Will Congress and legislative bodies around the country and the president, herself, use the election as a mandate for unleashing Manifest Destiny, 21st century edition, assuring the spread of women-owned enterprises from coast to coast? Like France and other nations, will President Clinton enact laws that require corporations to seat women on boards with parity? At the end of the day, if, like me, you’re from the segment of America where women have always worked…and work hard…for pretty much a pittance…the novelty, for us, and, I suspect, for millions of other Americans, is not the concept of women wielding power, carrying the load…the miraculous would be seeing the average woman making real money. Will a woman’s presidency take women beyond the trap of working, well honestly, to just about cover the ability to return to work each day? And by doing so, find solutions that can save an entire workforce that appears headed toward the same fate? And, back to that other question. Who hasn’t debated the possibility in political science, sociology, history and anthropology classes from high school to higher ED …the big question? Will life-changing differences in government policies dealing with the economy, the environment, justice, foreign aid and other issues tied to enhancing the futures of the world’s towns and cities shift to focus on uplifting families, if a mom is finally the acknowledged leader of the known universe? As my friend, Elizabeth, pointed out, a grandmother could be the next POTUS. The leadership of ISL will instantaneously combust. A Miss America will finally have the tool-belt she needs to hammer out that ever illusive WORLD PEACE. Will she use it?

Ask for ZAHA HADID clipart online and you get floor plans for museums, airports, office complexes, corporate headquarters, you get furniture, lighting, you get shoes. If you wanted an architect to design wildly organic monumentality from doorknob to rafters to tabletop to footstool, but, your first choice, Frank Lloyd Wright, was no longer available, in the contemporary world you’d have chosen Zaha Hadid. That was exactly what the curators of Bartlesville’s Price Tower did when contemplating a 21st century addition to the only skyscraper built by America’s most famous architect. But, when Hadid died this year in a Miami hospital she left the world exactly zero super -iconic architecture firms named solely for a


woman and bereft of her incomparable skill and talent. Born in Iraq, Hadid studied at London’s highly lauded Architectural Association. In the early 1980s, 1990s, her pre-Bilbao complex engineering married to elegant, cool


Page 192

beauty met with ceaseless criticism as too conceptual and impossible to build. She didn’t listen. She went on to start her own firm and to teach at the Architectural Association, and architecture programs around the world, including those at Harvard, Columbia and Yale in the US. Today, her work stands on nearly every continent. By 2004, Zaha Hadid was the recipient of her profession’s highest honor, the prestigious Pritzker Prize, cementing her place firmly in the pantheon...now, there’s Mies, Corbu, Wright and Zaha.
