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.
