In the 1920s, America’s Black Wall Street, Greenwood, OK, was the scene of a raging fire that resulted from a racial incident. At roughly the same time, Osage Indians were being murdered an hour north of Tulsa, in a land grab scheme. Victor Luckerson, a Montgomery native, moved to Tulsa to research the era, and he shares his findings with Carolyn Hutcheson, In Focus host. His book is “Built From the Fire, the Epic Story of Tulsa’s Greenwood District, America’s Black Wall Street.” This program is part of The Storyline Book Series.
