Black Wall Street' illustrates explosive nature of early-20th century race relations

Glenn talks about Richard Lloyd Jones and the fiery publication he put out in 1921 that set off a rash of violence and death in the Tulsa, Oklahoma neighborhood of Greenwood, also known as "Black Wall Street."

After a black shoe shiner was accused of assaulting a white female elevator operator, tension quickly boiled over into chaos that left hundreds dead and the once-thriving community destroyed.
