Black Wall Street

Black Wall Street

Black Wall Street was a prospering African-American neighborhood In Tulsa, Oklahoma, that went up in flames 95 years ago. Incredibly, most Americans have never heard of the shameful events of June 1, 1921, when whites firebombed the neighborhood from the air and an estimated 300 African-Americans were murdered.

For decades, the city of Tulsa tried to erase this dark day from its memory and history books alike. It  nearly succeeded — because what happened seems almost impossible to believe.

Complete with eyewitness accounts, the following video tells the truly stunning story of that day.

Wow humans are capable of such brutality towards one another. It's a shame, if we had all come together as a species we could have created beautiful things. But we chose to spend our resources developing new ways to kill each other. We live in a time in history that will be remembered very negatively,  if there's anyone left to remember us. Very good video, these people at the least deserve to have their story told.
