The Legacy of Black Wall Street

The Legacy of Black Wall Street tracks the rise of Black Wall Street in Oklahoma’s Greenwood District, up until the 1921 Tulsa race massacre that destroyed the 36-block booming business epicenter. This commemorative documentary shifts the narrative from the massacre itself to amplify the voices of those Black pioneers then who went West to build their American dream.

Edgeworx Studios was thrilled to partner with the filmmakers on creating the wide array of animation and visual effects used throughout the film to bring together Greenwood’s past and present.
