T
he Greenwood neighborhood
in Tulsa, Oklahoma, housed
one of the most successful Black
economies in American history. The
area is, now, commonly referred to as
“The Black Wall Street.” Most of the
businesses and homes were burned
down in the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921.
Money Stayed Inside the Community
The dollar circulated 36 to 100 times
in this tight-knit community, according to
sfbayview.com. A single dollar might have stayed
in Tulsa for almost a year before leaving the Black
community. Comparatively in modern times, a
dollar can circulate in Asian communities for a
month, Jewish communities for 20 days and white
communities for 17, but it leaves the modernday Black community in six hours, according to
reports from the NAACP.
People in Tulsa Were Leading in
Luxury Possessions
In a time when the entire state of Oklahoma had
only two airports, six Black families owned their
own planes. The average income for a Black family
was well over what minimum wage is today.
Dr. Simon Berry, who owned the bus system in
Tulsa, recalls that in 1910 his average income was
around $500 a day, according to reports from
sfbayview.com.
The Body Count of the Tulsa Race Riot
When the community was burned down in the
Tulsa Race Riot, over 800 people were admitted
to surrounding hospitals, an estimated 10,000
were left homeless, 35 city blocks housing 1,256
residences were destroyed, and 600 successful
businesses were lost, including 21 restaurants, 30
grocery stores, two movie theaters and a hospital.
The Ku Klux Klan-led riot lasted for over 16
hours.

Desegregation Killed the Resurgence of
Black Wall Street
In the initial years after the riot, surviving
residents began to rebuild the once-vibrant city. It
thrived again until the desegregation of the 1950s
and ’60s began to entice the Black people of the
time to live elsewhere, causing Black Wall Street to
never again be what it once was.
The Creation of Black Wall Street Was
Intentional
In 1906, O.W. Gurley, a wealthy AfricanAmerican from Arkansas, moved to Tulsa and
purchased over 40 acres of land that he made sure
was only sold to other African-Americans. Gurley
also used the area to give refuge to AfricanAmericans running from the harsh oppression of
Mississippi. 
