In Greenwood, there was a black community of affluent African-Americans. This black area was known for being independent and self-sufficient because black residents were owners of the houses, banks, stores, restaurants, and theaters (the Atlantic.com).
The city had 10,000 black residents, and most of them resided and worked in the wealthy, beautiful district of Greenwood, known as Black Wall Street.
In 1921, white rioters destroyed this prosperous black community.
They murdered 300 black Tulsans, caused thousands to be homeless, and devastated their entire neighborhoods.
This attack is called the Tulsa race massacre, the Tulsa race riot, the Greenwood Massacre, or the Black Wall Street Massacre of 1921 (May 31 and June 1, 1921).
This demonic attack on the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma is called "the single worst incident of racial violence in American history" (various sources).
Racist white Americans released their attack from the ground and from private aircrafts, demolishing 35 square blocks of the district.
No one was held accountable for this crime. Watch the video to learn about the complete story.
"The dollar circulated 36 to 100 times in this tight-knit community, according to sfbayview.com.
A single dollar might have stayed in Tulsa for almost a year before leaving the Black community.
Comparatively in modern times, a dollar can circulate in Asian communities for a month, Jewish communities for 20 days and white communities for 17, but it leaves the modern-day Black community in six hours, according to reports from the NAACP" (AtlantaBlackStar).
