The commission framed to notice the 100th commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre reported Friday that it has booted Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt from his seat on the board.
An assertion from the commission didn’t show the justification the splitting, and a representative said the commission had no further remark. Nonetheless, the move came after commission project administrator Phil Armstrong reprimanded the Republican lead representative for marking a bill into law banning the instructing of certain race and bigotry ideas in Oklahoma schools.
“The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commissioners met Tuesday and concurred through agreement to head out in different directions from Governor Stitt,” the commission’s assertion said.
It proceeded to say that while the commission “is demoralized to head out in different directions from Governor Stitt, we are appreciative for the things achieved together.” It likewise said, “No chosen authorities, nor delegates of chose authorities, were associated with this choice.”
The Republican lead representative was educated regarding his ouster just when the commission gave its assertion, said Stitt representative Carly Atchison.
