One hundred years after the massacre in the Greenwood District of Tulsa, aka Black Wall Street, this short film draws a century-long thread from 1921 to 2021, revealing the lingering economic, psychological and emotional impacts of the Tulsa Massacre through the lens of descendants. Our descendents, Byron Crenshaw and Jacqueline Blocker, represent families that exemplified success in Greenwood before the massacre. Through intimate interviews and lyrical verite, Byron, Jacqueline and their family members reach back to uplift the stories of their ancestors, the success they created, the promise they fulfilled, the horrors they endured and the resilience they showed. Invoking the deep entrepreneurial spirit of those who created one of the greatest Black communities this country has ever known, Byron and Jacqueline imagine a path forward to recapture the Black joy that once permeated Tulsa's Black Wall Street.Plot summaryAdd synopsisTaglinesThrough the lens of family members that descended from Black Wall Street, we ask the question, "If the Tulsa Race Massacre had never happened, would Black Wall Street have influenced the entire nation?"GenresDocumentaryShortParents guideAdd content advisory
