Tulsa's Greenwood neighborhood found prosperity after the 1921 massacre. Then the highways arrived.

Reporting by @GrahamBrewer.


(1/7) #NBCNewsThreads
@grahambrewer Next week, it will be a century since a white mob looted, burned and murdered in Tulsa’s Greenwood neighborhood, then known as the Black Wall Street, killing hundreds and displacing thousands more.

But that’s not the full story of Greenwood, nor its end. (2/7)
@grahambrewer Greenwood residents say they were robbed twice: in 1921 and again 50 years later when eminent domain took their homes.
Current and former residents are still calling for justice, whether through equity in property ownership, or the removal of the highways. (3/7)

"We've tried implicit bias training. We've tried...conflict resolution training. We've tried all of these different things, but you cannot reform what's in somebody's heart. The system of law enforcement...around the country, it's almost unreformable," one advocate says.

When Marvin Burch was 19-year-old student at Norfolk State University, he and two friends shopped at a mall where they saw a white man getting arrested for what they later learned was check forgery. (1/7) nbcnews.to/3fpHRIK #NBCNewsThreads
"The man pointed at me as we walked past the bank," said Burch, now 60. "And then a cop asked me to come with him." (2/7)
A white officer escorted Burch into the bank, where the detained white man claimed that Burch had given him a forged check and two identifications of a Black man with an Afro.

"It obviously wasn't me," Burch said. "There was no resemblance, and I did not have an Afro." (3/7)
