This presentation by Michael Imhotep founder of The African History Network and host of “The Michael Imhotep Show” deals with a lot of the little known history of North Tulsa, Oklahoma and its African American business district called The Greenwood District or “Black Wall Street”. We had 35 blocks of over 600 businesses in the early 1900s. The real history of Black Wall Street is not very well known and even lesser known is the fact that in spite of insurmountable odds, we rebuilt Black Wall Street after the Race Riot of June 1921.
- Topics Covered Include: - A Timeline of history leading up to June 1921.
- The origins of Tulsa, Oklahoma which was settled by Creek Indians around 1836.
- The Black Freedmen Indian Treaty of 1866. This treaty is being enforced for White Indians but not for Africans Americans who qualify.
- Did you know that all “5 Civilized Tribes of Native Americans” owned Black Slaves?
- Black Wall Street was rebuilt after 1921.
- What really destroyed Black Wall Street? It was not the Race Riot.
Some products could take up to 7-10 business days before items are shipped. We do not hold excess inventory or stock.
All items are "made to order" or obtained from a third-party supplier. This does require enough time to guarantee quality products made specially for you. Production on all items typically takes 7-10 business (Monday-Friday and exluding holidays) days after order placement.
Orders placed after 4:30 pm CST or over the weekend will not be processed and prepped for production until the following business day. Delays can occur due to manufacturing, order volume and/or weather conditions.
