Monday, February 20th, 7:30pm. A Black History Month Special
Presentation: Remembering Black Wall Street 90 Years Later. Before They
Die!: The True Story of the Survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and
the Quest for Justice

 

Reggie Turner, 2008, 92 min. This is the story of what is perhaps the
the worst race riot in the history of the United States that many people
have never even heard of. On May 30th, 1921, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in
less than 24 hours, the prosperous African-American section of
Greenwood, also known as "Black Wall Street," was completely destroyed.
An estimated 300 killed, and over 10,000 people displaced overnight as a
42 square block area of their homes and businesses were burned to the
ground by a white mob that had been deputized by the sheriff. This is
the story of the survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and their quest
for justice.  This is the story of the struggle for the soul of America
and the efforts to right a wrong that is long past due. Justice is the
subject of the night's film.
