Tulsa’s Black Wall Street Was Bombed and Destroyed 99 Years Ago Today #blackwallstreet #neverforget

The Tulsa race massacre (also called the Tulsa race riot, the Greenwood Massacre, or the Black Wall Street Massacre) of 1921 took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents attacked Black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

10,000 Blacks were displaced, over 300 were killed, and 35-square blocks filled with hundreds of Black-owned businesses were utterly annihilated. #blackwallstreet #neverforget
