Black Wall Street Burning
March 22, 2020 @ 2pm & 4:30pm
The Goddard Center would like to invite you and your family to come see the indie-film “Black Wall Street Burning” on Sunday, March 22nd at 2pm and 4:30pm. Tickets are $8 for Adults and $6 for Children ages 17 and younger.
This R-rated dramatic feature is based on real-life events surrounding the 1921 Tulsa race massacre. In this tragic event, almost paved over and lost to history, a young black man was accused of assaulting a young white woman, leading to the destruction of the thriving Greenwood District, also known as "Black Wall Street." Even 99 years later, it is still the largest race massacre in U.S. history. The film focuses both on the destruction and how a group of people were forever affected. Produced by Oklahoma City based Noftis Studios and filmed in central Oklahoma, "Black Wall Street Burning" is directed by Dekoven Riggins and Marcus E. Brown, written by Riggins and stars Day'Quann Ervin, Cordney McClain, Mitch Yoder, Adam Modisette and Robyn Carter.
