Tulsa's Woody Guthrie Center will screen 'The Grapes of Wrath'

“We think it's an excellent combination with what we have to show related to the Dust Bowl and the things that Woody Guthrie spoke up against,” said Deana McCloud, executive director of the Woody Guthrie Center. “Some of his very first songwritings had to do with making public the plight of those people who were suffering who had migrated to California and were being treated poorly. That was in an era when being called an ‘Okie' was a derogatory term, whereas now we think of it as our proud heritage.”

Saturday's film screening is free with paid admission, and the center's exhibits will be open until the movie starts.

The screening is offered in conjunction with the National Steinbeck Center's 2014 “Grapes of Wrath” 75th anniversary celebration. The national center is sending representatives Oct. 6 to record Tulsa area resident's oral histories related to the Dust Bowl and Great Depression.
