About The Fires of Greenwood: The Tulsa Riot of 1921
In the early morning hours of June 1, 1921, hordes of angry whites in Tulsa, Oklahoma, crossed the Frisco railroad tracks into the Greenwood section known as Black Wall Street, armed with weapons and a determination to destroy. Within a seven hour period, they managed to slaughter over three hundred African Americans, while literally burning down all the businesses and homes within a 33 block radius. This well-written, fictionalized version chronicles the events that led to one of the most horrendous slaughters of American citizens in this country's troubled racial past.
