If you haven’t heard of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot, it was an event when on May 31 – June 1, 1921, a white mob attached residents and businesses of the African-American community of Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

This area was also known as Black Wall Street.

As part of a new documentary from the Smithsonian Channel, a rare, brand-new footage of Black Wall Street was uncovered after not seeing the light of day for more than 50 years! Also part of this footage is the only known color video of the day of the Riots.

Never forget your history.
