Why did the System Fail Knia Walton?

Why did the System Fail Knia Walton?

Tiffany Walton, the mother of Knia Walton appeared on Flippin’ the Script radio talk show with host Francetta L. Mays on The Greenwood Beat – WFPG to discuss the investigation and bring awareness surrounding her daughter’s case. Walton to Francetta, “I am aware that my daughter used drugs but she was still a person. She still deserves justice.” She went on to give details of her daughter’s “murder” that took place July 4, 2023 at Pioneer Plaza, 901 N Elgin Ave., Apt. 214 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

As of now, the system has failed Knia. Tiffany talks with Francetta about the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s murder. She describe her interaction with the person(s) she believes is “allegedly” responsible for Knia’s death. The crime scene was not processed properly, very little questioning took place and the bloody shirt that was taken off of her daughter before medics responded was NOT taken with authorities.

What are we doing? How has this happened? Watch the interview below.

The Greenwood Beat – WFPG Crowdfunding Equipment Fundraiser

The Greenwood Beat – WFPG Crowdfunding Equipment Fundraiser

The crowdfunding Equipment Fundraiser is off to a slow start but Angela K. Chambers and Francetta L. Mays are hopeful to meet their goal. Angela says, “I believe that as people hear of our story and When they realize that in 2023 we made history by creating the first black, female-owned radio station they will support us. In general, women have a more challenging fete to obtain and even having access to capital. But also when we are in 2023 and ‘blacks’ are still making history by being the first of anything tells me to remain hopefully.”

Echoing and adding to Angela’s sentiment, Francetta says, “As people hear our passion and understand what we are striving for I believe the support will come. The more people even just sharing the story helps to reach the people who are passionate about changing the world we live in today for the better.”

The Greenwood Beat – WFPG is “A Voice for Greenwood.”  Angela says, “And WFPG gives all of us the opportunity to discover the story and build on the resilience of Greenwood while recreating Black Wall Street and a better mankind. It’s not necessary to continue to pour gasoline on the fire of 1921 as Francetta always says.”

Consider making a donation to The Greenwood Beat – WFPG GoFundMe crowdfunding Equipment Fundraiser.  Any size donation is welcome. According to Franetta L. Mays, also an Associate Pastor at the Historic Vernon AME Church (Vernon), “In the Book of Redemption located in Vernon, the people were able to rebuild in one year’s time with donations as small as $0.10.” Share the link with your family, friends and networks.

Every Friday, WFPG promotes its $5 CashApp SHOUT OUTS! Listeners CashApp $5 to $TheGreenwoodBeat and on Fridays,  they are given a SHOUT OUT on Facebook. Beginning Friday, July 14, 2023, the SHOUT OUTS will also be listed on the website.

Help Tulsa’s First Women-Owned Radio Station

Help Tulsa’s First Women-Owned Radio Station Buy New Equipment
We are thrilled to announce the launch of a groundbreaking project in the heart of Greenwood District, aka the Original Black Wall Street – The Greenwood Beat: WFPG. I’m Angela K. Chambers, the CEO and owner of the first women-owned radio station in the entire Tulsa.
Who Are We?
I’m Angela K. Chambers, a serial entrepreneur, community activist, and author. I’ve previously served as the First Vice President of the NAACP Tulsa branch. Moreover, I’m the co-founder of the Oklahoma Black-Owned Business Network and have been hosting the radio show “Refocused & Informed Radio Talk Show” since January 2022.
I laid the foundation of this community radio station with my partner and COO of the Greenwood Beat, Francetta L. Mays, who is the Associate Pastor at Vernon A.M.E. Church and President of NAACP Tulsa branch#6143.
Together, we strive to give a much-needed voice to the people of Tulsa and make a positive impact on the community. Now we need your support to bring our vision to life. Therefore, we are launching a fundraising campaign to raise $75K for the completion of our station setup and purchase of essential equipment for radio station operations.

Let’s support the first black female-owned radio station in Oklahoma! The Greenwood Beat – WFPG

 

WFPG launched June 8, 2023 in the Historic Greenwood District AKA The Original Black Wall Street located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

All eyes are on Greenwood after Americans are learning and sharing the story of the 1921 Race Massacre that happened in Tulsa on Greenwood, which destroyed 35 square miles of black owned businesses and homes.

Dr. Angela K. Chambers started The Greenwood Beat – WFPG with friend, business partner and prayer warrior partner Dr. Francetta L. Mays. Together they have created an amazing platform to aid in bridging the community, families, organizations and agencies for a better Tulsa for all.

The station has programming for 24/7, 365 days per year consisting of music, radio shows, inspiration, education, history and sports.

Both ladies host the Refocused and Informed Radio Talk Show, which is the anchor show. Angela serves as the Chief Executive Officer and recently surprised Francetta, Chief Operations Officer and listeners with the news of the show’s syndication.
