    Paperback Description:

    It’s storytime at Grandme’s house, and Keith has never heard the story of Black Wall Street. He’s never heard of the vibrant Black business district that once existed in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He’s never heard that it sustained over 600 businesses, a church, schools, libraries, theaters, clothing stores, restaurants, and a hospital! It had ice cream and candy stores too. He’s also never heard that the first bombs that ever fell on American soil were on Black Wall Street. And he’s never heard of the terrible events of May 1920 that razed it all to the ground. Have you? Sit down and listen to Grandme’s story to find out what happened and be proud of the way the Black Wall Street people worked together and supported one another. Maybe you will be inspired to become an entrepreneur just like them.
