More than a century ago, the Tulsa, Oklahoma neighborhood of Greenwood was a thriving neighborhood of Black-owned businesses, hotels, stores and a hospital. But that community suffered a terrible blow in 1921, when it became the site of the worst single event of racial terrorism in America’s history, where somewhere between 100 and 300 African American residents were killed, 35 blocks of real estate were looted and set ablaze, and thousands of families were displaced. Now, Tulsa is transforming the site of a tragedy into a vibrant community hub.
