Okie Film Night powered by Experience Tulsa! Featuring a special intro from co-director Keith "Sneak" Daniels about documenting the recording of this legendary Tulsa hip-hop album. Tickets just $5 each!

"Fire in Little Africa" tells the story of rappers, singers, musicians, and filmmakers leading the path to healing the city with hip-hop. Inspired by the legacy of Black Wall Street, Tulsa’s independent hip-hop artists came together to make an album for the centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre in 2021 and took it all the way to a deal with the iconic Motown record label. The film serves as an introduction to the unique spirit and ethos of the Tulsa hip-hop scene; taking the viewer inside the legendary recording sessions where over 60 artists took over a mansion once owned by a notorious KKK leader to create and record the 21-song opus. The film runs 42min.

Presented with Experience Tulsa, Okie Film Night is a monthly series celebrating Oklahoma’s rich film history past and present. Learn more about other events at ExperienceTulsaHub.org.
