This documentary is the story of some of the survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and their quest for justice before they died.
It was the worst race riot in the history of the United States; however, most people have never heard of it. Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1921, in less than 24 hours the prosperous African-American section of Greenwood, also known as “Black Wall Street,” was completely destroyed. An estimated 300 were killed and over 10,000 people displaced, as a 42 square block area of their homes and businesses were burned to the ground by a white mob that had been deputized by the sheriff.
This is a story about the struggle for the soul of America and efforts to right a wrong that is long past due.
