jennibelle05 Beneath this tree lies David S. Berry
In 1873 I came to this cemetery
The woods holds the secrets of my past life
My joys and struggles, maybe a wife
I'm waiting for the appointed time when I'm summoned from sleep to begin a new life
A Life with purpose and meaning, family and friends,
Satisfaction and love in a life without end.

jennibelle05 Found this stairway to an old cemetery from the 1800s in Comstock Park. There were headstones all along the sides of the hill, with little paths connecting different family burial sites. It is apparently still being used. 1mon

conspiracy_brutha Repost from @kai_vs_the_world 93 years ago on this day June 1, 1921, the Tulsa Race Riot began. It is marked as the deadliest race riot in the history of the U.S. & destroyed what was known as, Black Wall Street.

Black Wall Street was the wealthiest black community in the United States, full of black owned businesses consisting of: 
movie theaters 
dental offices
independent newspapers
restaurants
grocery stores
a bank
post offices
a bus system
schools
airplanes
law offices 
its own hospital

Racial tension boiled over on May 30, 1921 when a white woman accused a black boy of sexual assault. Late that night, a mob of nearly 10,000 white men launched an all out assault on Black Wall Street systematically burning down every home & business. 
Attacks came from both the ground and the sky as the mobs used planes from World War I to drop firebombs and shoot at residents. African Americans that were captured were held in internment camps around the city by local police & National Guard units.

Blacks who were injured during the 16 hour attack couldn’t seek medical care because the mobs torched the only black hospital in the city.

The attack left about 10,000 African Americans homeless and 35 city blocks burned to the ground. In total, 1,256 houses & 191 businesses (including churches, a middle school & a hospital) were burned. 
In the aftermath, it was estimated that 300 African Americans were killed and many of their bodies were buried in unmarked graves.

The Tulsa Race Riot was taught for the 1st time in Tulsa public schools in 2012. 2mon
