Eddie Faye Gates Death,  Cause of Death – It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of activist and educator Eddie Faye Gates. A vital source for truth, repair, and justice, Gates served as a member of the Tulsa Race Riot Commission, advocating for survivors and recording their stories. Eddie Faye Gates is best known for playing a significant role in recording the narratives of over 200 survivors who lived through the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. One of the biggest inspirations for @Greenwood1922.

The stories of Greenwood she collected will live on forever. Praying today for her family. The TU family mourns the passing of Eddie Faye Gates, who earned a master’s degree in history from TU in 1974. Her presence will be missed in our community. She was an author, civil rights activist and historian.

She taught high school for 22 years before becoming the Social Studies Curriculum Coordinator in Tulsa. She wrote a book Mz. Lucy Cookies. She passed last Thursday. She shone a light on Tulsa’s sordid history at a time when the city thought we had all forgotten. She was an author, civil rights activist and historian. She taught high school for 22 years before becoming the Social Studies Curriculum Coordinator in Tulsa. She wrote a book Mz. Lucy Cookies. She passed last Thursday.
