 The film Black Wall Street Burning by directors Marcus Brown and  Dekoven Riggins is a retelling of the worst act of terrorism and racism in American History.

 Choosing to tell this story  in a motion picture format instead of a documentary format and told by Oklahomans with a cast from Oklahoma not Hollywood the Black Wall Street Burning also known as The Tulsa Race Massacre is brought to life.  Where for two days and nights   in 1921white mobs of Tulsa residents rampaged attacked and murdered the black citizens of Greenwood District known as Black Wall Street.

 By making and viewing this film it is hoped that what was left in the dark about this crucial episode of American History  will be brought to light.
