Join us as we watch important films related to the Black experience in America.

Black Wall Street (History Channel) (2015) PG | 43mins

The Tulsa race riot was a large-scale, racially motivated program on May 31 and June 1, 1921, in which a group of whites attacked the black community of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Greenwood District, the wealthiest black community in the United States (now commonly referred to as "the Black Wall Street"), was burned to the ground. The events of the massacre were long omitted from local and state history books and rarely mentioned.
