Global News published this video item, entitled “Tulsa Massacre: A century after “Black Wall Street” was burned, the push for reparations continues” – below is their description.
It has been 100 years since the Tulsa Massacre saw the predominantly-Black neighbourhood of Greenwood in the Oklahoma city heavily damaged by flames and looting by a white mob.
Sparked by the arrest of a Black teenager for the alleged assault of a white woman in an elevator – a charge that was later dropped – the mob made its way from the court house where the teen was held, to the neighbourhood in the early morning of June 1.
Numerous homes, churches and other businesses – including an area referred to as the Black Wall Street – were burned to the ground and up to 300 people are estimated to have been killed.
