Julius Pegues talked about Tulsa, Oklahoma’s, historic Greenwood district and how Tulsa’s African American community overcame race riots to rebuild their community. Dubbed America’s “Black Wall Street” bu Booker T. Washington, the Greenwood district was a prosperous center for black commerce in the early 20th century. In 1921, a conflict between blacks and whites led to the destruction of much of the Greenwood area.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Tulsa, Oklahoma, from March 8-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
