In the early 1900’s, the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma was commonly referred to as ‘Black Wall Street’. It was a predominantly African American town that was booming due to the nearby discovery of oil. Greenwood was a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family – but that all changed on May 31, 1921. In a matter of hours, the area was burnt to ashes and its estimated that up to 300 people were murdered. Historian Scott Ellsworth shares the largely untold story of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.
