Join Us For Our 13th Annual Colour of Humanity Gala!

This year we will take an historical glimpse at the social, intellectual and artistic explosion in Tulsa, OK during the 1920s and 1930s.

This is a formal event featuring a fantastic soul food buffet, silent auction, Black Wall Street video presentation, dinner and dancing with live band Facor Primo. 1930s attire is welcomed and encouraged.

Proceeds will enable the Museum to maintain and expand several cultural and educational projects, one of which will be The Porter House, at 650 Lincoln Ave. Mr. Alfred & Mrs. Porter were teachers at the segregated Lincoln School, where Mr. Porter was the band teacher. Once structurally and historically renovated, the home will serve the Evansville community as a youth performing arts venue and local hub for local artists of all kinds to showcase their talents, as well as mentor young people of all ages in various forms of art: drama, and music.

Table sponsorships as well as individual tickets are on sale now! For more details, please contact Lori Noble at: 812.423.5188 or

Following CDC guidelines, masks are encouraged.
