Starting from the founding of Greenwood by C. W. Gurley, this graphic novel tells the history of Black Wall Street as more than just the place where the Tulsa Race Massacre occurred.

I liked that the focus in this graphic novel isn’t just how Greenwood was destroyed. Normally all people talk about is how great it was but only detail how it was destroyed; not the professionals and business people who lived and thrived there. This is a great resource to learn more about this time in history; especially for young adults. 4.7 out of 5.
