What We Have Built In The Past.

We all know that repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is Insanity. So I decided to educate myself so I will not continue repeating the same things over and over again.  

As I begin to research the history of, and what happened to The Black Wall Street. I found out that the race riot was not what ultimately destroyed Black Wall Street even though it was physically destroyed at the time. After rebuilding Greenwood, desegregation is what caused its ultimate decline. 

The links below gave me a better perspective on some history of Greenwood Oklahoma, Also known as Black Wall Street. It was not some backwater country town. As the photos show. It was a thriving modern town.
