Descended from The Promised Land: The Legacy of Black Wall Street
Director: Nailah Jefferson
Synopsis: The descendants of Black Wall Street were robbed twice, first by the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and then through laws and policy that dismantled the rebuilding of Black Wall Street. Through the lens of those descended from the “Black Promised Land” we draw a century-long thread, revealing the lingering trauma endured when a thriving Black community is repeatedly targeted for systematic destruction.
