#Greenwood is a neighborhood in #Tulsa, #Oklahoma.  As one of the most #successful and wealthiest #AfricanAmerican communities in the United States during the early 20th Century, it was popularly known as #America’s “Black Wall Street” until the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 (LOOK THIS UP…The details about the lives, businesses, and homes lost were covered up…but some survivors and their descendants were able to tell their stories.  THERE STILL HAS BEEN NO RESTITUTION GIVEN FOR THE LOSSES IN ONE OF THE WORST RACE RIOTS IN AMERICAN HISTORY!!) The riot was one of the most devastating race riots in history and it destroyed the once thriving Greenwood #community.” via @PhotoRepost_app  I’d like for people to read up on this not to resurface feelings of hate or sadness, I’d like for you to see what a real community and togetherness did build at that time and to educate people on some American history you might not have learned in school….whatever race you are or month we are in black history is American history.✌️👑 #blackwallstreet
