Documentary Mondays 'Never Forget' Talk Back Series: Tulsa's 'Black Wall Street': The 1921 Attack on Greenwood

Presented in recognition of the 100th commemoration of the Tulsa Massacre. The 1921 Attack on Greenwood was one of the most significant events in Tulsa’s history. Following World War I, Tulsa was recognized nationally for its affluent African American community known as the Greenwood District. This thriving business district and surrounding residential area was referred to as “Black Wall Street.”  One hundred years earlier, in June 1921, a series of events nearly destroyed the entire Greenwood area.

The massacre, which began on May 31, 1921 and left hundreds of Black residents dead and 1,000 houses destroyed, often overshadows the history of the venerable Black enclave itself.

To prepare for the talk back, we invite you to watch the documentary, Black Wall Street Tulsa, OK 1921, using the following link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iankhf70X0Q&feature=youtu.be
