20:43 Black Wall Street Remembered – Tulsa Burning – Greenwood District

Tulsa was the site of the worst race massacre in American history in 1921. Some 300 people were killed and property damage ran into the millions. Tulsa’s African-Americans overcame. The Greenwood District was rebuilt and, by 1942, boasted 242 Black-owned and Black-operated business establishments. The book is a testament to the human spirit.
