Black Wall Street Mural and Memorial

The Wall Street mural looks great; I live in Tulsa and didn't realize how much there was to see down here until recently. Also new, and just down the street from the slab wall and mural, is a museum. "Greenwood Rising" tells of the Tulsa race riots of the early 1920s and other local historical events that followed. Admission will be free through next summer.

A memorial slab to the 1921 race war and massacre has been on site at least ten years; a large wall mural was added recently.
