The History of Black Wall Street
On May 31 and June 1, 1921, a white mob of supremacists decimated a Black American neighborhood, killing families and forcing others to leave.
Witnesses famously describe some of the white men running to a nearby airfield, where survivors said planes rained down bullets on the neighborhood and dropped homemade bombs.
The massacre could possibly be Oklahoma's deadliest act of domestic terrorism and one of the most violent racial attacks in American history. ABC News goes deep into the story of the Greenwood massacre in its podcast, which includes Charlie Wilson's story in "Soul of a Nation: Tulsa's Buried Truth."

"Truth smashed down to the ground shall rise again undaunted."
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
ABC News senior national correspondent Steve Osunsami wanted to get to the bottom of the stories surrounding the massacre and its connection to The Gap Band's song, so he went straight to the source in Tulsa.
Along with the ABC News Investigative Unit and ABC Audio, Osunsami created a podcast on the event called "Tulsa's Buried Truths," available for download.
