As a black entrepreneur, visiting the Historic District of Greenwood was a surreal experience and confirmed for me that there are no limits. In 1921, there was a thriving community of prosperous black entrepreneurs. They owned hotels, restaurants, hair salons, barber shops, grocery stores, bakeries, and the list goes on. This wall documents some of the businesses that were black owned and thriving before the 1921 Tulsa Race Riots. This wall also documents some of the businesses that were destroyed during the race riots.
Thank you to Ed Hunter of H Studios in Tulsa for following me around and documenting my reactions. I never want to forget this experience.
