Root is supported by the George Kaiser Family Foundation and staffed by two Tulsans, Matt Carney and Mason Powell.
Matt is into sci-fi novels, collecting vinyl and basketball. He grew up in Tulsa and moved back home to start Root and his family at about the same time. You can find him at [email protected] or handing out beer to cyclists every summmer at Tulsa Tough.
Mason is an enrolled member of the Osage Nation. He grew up in small town Oklahoma, and graduated from the University of Tulsa. As Root’s Content Associate, he’s always looking for exciting events to share with you. You can contact him at [email protected].
Bea Baker wrote, photographed and diligently scouted much of the content that still exists on our ever-updating website before she went on to work for the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission.
