TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is making his first campaign stop in Tulsa.

The former New York City mayor will deliver a speech on Sunday outlining his plan for “economic mobility.” His campaign says that the proposal will offer a new path toward prosperity for communities that are often overlooked.

Bloomberg is making the announcement at the Greenwood Cultural Center in Tulsa. The center was built on the site of the city’s Black Wall Street, which was razed to rubble during a race massacre in 1921 that left hundreds of black residents dead.
