TOWNE SHEPPARD ACT 1921 WHICH CREATED THE BIRTH CERTIFICATES THIS DETERMINED THE STATE YOU LIVE IN.
Join me on Tuesday Night @ 5:30 PM CST as I talk with educator and author Frederick Williams. His new book is entitled Fires of Greenwood, is a novel based on the Tulsa Riot of 1921. For those of you who are unaware, the Tulsa Riot of 1921 is the story of Black Wall Street. Surely you do not wish to miss this provacative convseration!
Greenwood, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa, was the type of community that African Americans are still, today, attempting to reclaim and rebuild. It was modern, majestic, sophisticated and unapologetically Black. Tragically, it was also the site of one of the bloodiest and most horrendous race riots (and acts of terrorism) that the United States has ever experienced.
It has been ninty-two years since as many as 3000 African Americans lost their lives and more than 9,000 were left homeless when the small town was attacked, looted and literally burned to the ground on June 1, 1921. It’s impossible, however, to realize what was lost in Greenwood, which was affectionately known as "Black Wall Street."
The Greenwood community seems almost imagined when we examine it through a historical lens. The oil booms of the early 1900’s had many moving to Tulsa for a shot at quick economic gains and high life, and African Americans hoped to prosper from the new industry as well. Tulsa, like many cities and towns throughout the US, was hostilely segregated, with African Americans settling into the northern region of the city. As we often saw before integration, Blacks in the area created entrepreneurial opportunities for themselves, which housed an impressive business center that included banks, hotels, cafes, clothiers, movie theaters, and contemporary homes. Greenwood residents enjoyed many luxuries that their White neighbors did not, including indoor plumbing and a remarkable school system that superiorly educated Black children.This is our history
On Thursday June 26th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
present a discussion on the magical aspects of Abraham Merritt's (1884 -
1943) novels and stories of exotic fantasy adventure. Merritt was a
highly respected journalist who wrote his colorful tales of the occult
and the bizarre for his own pleasure and not as pot-boilers for the
pulps even though ARGOSY and other pulps were his main outlet. His work
had the quality of literature and the mytho-folkloric erudition of a
Robert Graves. Merritt had a library of over 5000 books on myth,
folklore and the occult. His tales of lost cities, ancient secret cults
and strange other-worldly phenomenon are unparalleled in beauty and
imagination. His "People of the Pit" (1917) was a profound influence on
H.P. Lovecraft and his masterpiece "The Ship of Ishtar" (1924)
described Richard Shaver's inter-dimensional "Simultane" concept. (It
was also the template for our path-working soul-travel boat.) His
"Dwellers in the Mirage"(1932) was an inspiration for my sc-fi novel
"Drell Master." Merritt was steeped in Blavatsky's Atlantis and Lemuria
lore and the obscure legendary sources behind these lost civilizations.
His "The Moon Pool" (1921) lured us out to the ruins of Lemuria in the
Pacific (see Beyond Lemuria). So, if you want to spend an hour with the
Dream-maker, tune and we'll set sail to evening Isles fantastical.
Many are aware of the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Oklahoma as that was called the Black Wall Street of it's time. From May 30 - June 1, 1921 that section of Tulsa went up in flames as a result of whites being intimidated by the success of blacks. As a result the white community came and burned Greenwood, Tulsa, OK down. HOWEVER, before the massacre at Greenwood, there's a little known history of it's predecessor - the massacre at Wilmington, NC.
The Wilmington Massacre of 1898 or the Wilmington Race Riot of 1898, occurred in Wilmington, NC starting on November 10, 1898 into the following days; it is considered a turning point in North Carolina politics following Reconstruction. Journey with Tabitha Vinson as she interviews film director Christopher Everett as we discuss his documentary film Wilmington on Fire!
May 31, 2014 Join us in a discussion about the survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 and also it is the centennial of the UNIA and we will be joined by its current President General Senghor Baye. Broadcasting LIVE from the Midway Broadcasting Studio on the Talk of Chicago WVON 1690 AM

On today's date, May 31st, in 1921 hundreds of people in Tulsa, Oklahoma were murdered, their homes and businesses burned and thousands rounded up and placed in ' holding areas ', or more correctly prison camps. It is an event that included the only time in U.S. history that the military dropped bombs on civilians. And in the aftermath, the survivors having to live through an Oklahoma winter in tents, if they were fortunate. You would think that something this terrible would be told and retold in history classes to inform future generations so that this type of atrocity is not repeated and to allow healing to take place. However, 93 years later the issue is still being debated, avoided and in some cases outright denied to the point of absurdity. So, we put the issue to the people, what is the right thing to do, when shold it be done and who should do it? Join us this Sunday, June 1st, from 3p-5p CST at www.blogtalkradio.com/rapsessions or call in at 347.857.2097. Let the People's voice be heard.
David Miller of www.daretobeking.net reports his observations live from Tulsa, Oklahoma - home of the Black Wall Street that was bombed and burned to the ground in 1921 in what became the first instance of the USA bombing its own citizens. David reminds us of the accomplishments there, in spite of racial hatred; over 600 businesses were there before the race riots and massacres in 1921. David is optimisitic still regarding his primary target market, black youth. Excited to put books in their hands, David continues to spreak his education ministry.
Feast of Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph with Seminarian Joe Keating. Our Christmas celebration continues with today’s observance of the feast of the Holy Family. Although only recently added to the Church calendar in 1921, this feast speaks to us of the timeless truth that God is with us in all our trials and triumphs of daily family living. Perhaps our prayer today can be for all those who raise their children in difficult circumstances, and for those who remain faithful to life in the Church in spite of some of their own family struggles. #feastofholyfamilyofjesusmaryandjoseph #joekeating #stjoe88 #stjosephcatholicchurcharlingtontx
Today's show is about the Black Holocaust, atragedy of the mass destruction and rioting of a black commuity in Tulsa, OK. Its flashpoint was at the Drexel Building at 319 South Main Street, when a young white girl claimed that a young black man had assaulted her in the elevator. Previous to this time, because it was one of the wealthiest black communities in America, it was known as Black Wall Street. This properous black community was the envy of many whites. Because of this, the community was bombed from the air and set on fire. This rich black community was to never recover.
