The Soul of Black Wall Street: Prestige and Entrepreneurship (Paperback)
A Black pioneer left Arkansas and headed for Tulsa in 1906. Later, joined by other black pioneers they created and sustained what became known as Black Wall Street, a ritzy black commune - keeping the wealth within for almost two decades. Tragedy struck in 1921, when envious Whites set that entire community on fire. Prolific author John a. Andrews cleverly inserts Junior Rowland, a young civil rights leader - creating a cliff-hanging twist inside this historic chronicle.
