A Visit To Black Wall Street

One of the highlights of 2018 for me has been attending Breakout in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I’ve never been to Oklahoma but was really intrigued by the idea of visiting Black Wall Street and learning about this illustrious history. I also wanted to see what the area is like currently, and how our legacy is being preserved and transformed for the present day. I had the opportunity to connect with brilliant artists, activists and historians such as Dr. Ricco Wright, the Artistic Director of the Black Wall Street Gallery. Check out this video of him explaining what set off the Black Wall Street Massacre, as well as the connection between Black and Indigenous communities in Tulsa.
