About this talk

COVID is making many of us question why we pay big city prices and what might be possible elsewhere. Creative bad-ass and entertainment lawyer Tobi Parks left Brooklyn for Des Moines to build xBk, a creative arts venue and to start Station 1 Records. Dr. Lester Shaw’s Tulsa-based A Pocketful of Hope non-profit acquired the derelict Big 10 Ballroom, a staple venue on the Chitlin Circuit in the 50s and 60s. Since 2007, he’s been working to restore this landmark into a cultural and community center in time for next year’s centennial of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. AMP co-founder Simon Rust Lamb will host a conversation with these two visionaries.
