Early in the twentieth century, the black community in Tulsa, Oklahoma, located in the “Greenwood District”- became frequently referred to as “The Black Wall Street of America”. Legal segregation forced blacks to do business among themselves. As a result, the Greenwood district prospered as dollars circulated within the black community. But fear and jealousy grew in the greater Tulsa community, which led to the worst riot in American history, the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921.
To talk more about this, I have attorney, consultant, and author, Hannibal B. Johnson. We will talk about his insightful and informative book entitled, “Black Wall Street: From Riot to Renaissance in Tulsa’s Historic Greenwood District”.
