Black Wall Street in Harlem

January 21, 2014

downloadIn the heartland of America there once was a Black Community Paradise more than 600 businesses strong.  Among these were 21 churches, 30 restaurants, 41 grocery stores, libraries, schools, law offices, a hospital, a bank, a post office, six privately owned airplanes, a bus system, and two movie theaters all within a 36 block radius.  The year was 1921 in Greenwood, Tulsa Oklahoma aka Black Wall Street.  Our hidden history comes alive onstage!
