Event Details

Black Wall Street is the story of Greenwood in Tulsa Oklahoma; a town that rose to prominence during the early 1900's, as an all-black enclave. At the center of this bustling town was a 65-room hotel surrounded by 600 thriving businesses.

The story exposes one of the largest race riots to occur in the U.S.A. The large-scale, racially motivated conflict on  June 1, 1921, in which whites attacked the black community resulting in the resolute destruction of the Greenwood District, also known as ' Black Wall Street'. 

The Black Wall Street Experience not only pays homage to the people and legacy of Greenwood but is also a memorial to the concept of self sustainable communities; a concept generally toted as a twenty first century notion and not generally initiated by minority groups. 

The facility to house The Black Wall Street Experience will be at The Andrew Freedman Home a 117,200 square foot, 4-story, limestone mansion that occupies an entire block designed by Joseph H. Friedlander in 1922
