This presentation from Michael Imhotep host of “The Michael Imhotep Show” and “The African History Network” deals with a lot of the little known history of North Tulsa, Oklahoma and it’s African American business district called The Greenwood District or “Black Wall Street”. We had 35 blocks of over 600 businesses in the early 1900s. The real history of Black Wall Street is not very well known and even lesser known is the fact that inspite of insurmountable odds, we rebuilt Black Wall Street after the Race Riot of June 1921.
Topics Covered in this presentation:
- A Timeline of history leading up to June 1921.
- The origins of Tulasa, Oklahoma which was settled by Creek Indians around 1836.
- The Black Freedmen Indian Treaty of 1866. This treaty is being enforced for White Indians but not for Africans Americans who qualify.
- Did you know that all “5 Civilized Tribes of Native Americans” owned Black Slaves?
- Black Wall Street was rebuilt after 1921.
- What really destroyed Black Wall Street? It was not the Race Riot.
