For 36 hours in 1921, friendship lost its way.
Great harm was done to people and property.
Black Wall Street disappeared in billowing clouds of smoke.
Dreams were shattered and some forever.
According to Clifton Taulbert, the embrace of genuine friendship cannot restore the lost past, but it can ensure a different future … one where 1921 will not be repeated and where all are respected, affirmed and included.
“Over the past few months of this year, the history of Tulsa 1921 has been revisited as scores of people … writers, young people, dancers, lawyers, movies, books, students and librarians all lending their voices as history to be taught and lessons to be learned. We are all in search for that more perfect union — a way of living together that requires friendship. We must not allow friendship to lose its way.”
