The early 20th century was a great time for blacks in Greenwood, OK. The oil boom brought tons of educated, wealthy blacks to the area and it became the Negro Wall Street for many prominent black businessmen.

Prior to its destruction, the predominantly black town was worth over 30 million dollars in today’s currency. Money circulated and stayed in the town because everything was black owned. From the airports to the movie theaters, Greenwood money only ever touched black hands.

In 1921, a devastating race riot resulted in the destruction of nearly 2000 homes and over millions of dollars worth of businesses were burned to the ground. From that day on, we were never able to return to that state again.

16 May Black Panthers Documentary

When I first started my undergraduate studies under the criminal justice major, I was required to read a book titled, Last Man Standing: The Tragedy and Triumph of Geronimo Pratt written by Jack Olsen. This book was life changing. It painted a completely different picture of the Black Panthers and what they stood for. Since then I was completely obsessed with the activism of the Black Panthers. To me, they were the epitome of advancement of the colored people. 

  • They knew their rights inside and out.
  • They were self- educated on the history of Black Americans.
  • They created programs to feed children breakfast.
  • They had drug prevention programs for addicts.
  • They were aggressive and not once did they express an agenda to discriminate against other minorities.
