The Black Myths Podcast

May 26, 2021

We're honoring the 100th-anniversary commemoration of the Tulsa Massacre sometimes poorly referred to as the Tulsa riot. We discuss how the pre-massacre Black Wall Street, a prominent Black business district located in the segregated Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was not the self-sustaining Black utopia/Wakanda that popular media has depicted it as. More importantly, we discuss the nature of the racial violence that occurred on May 31st - June 1st, 1921, and how it was an inevitable outcome of racial capitalism. In the end, we hope to honor the descendants of this horrible tragedy by reporting the truth of what they built and how they worked to defend it.
