Black Wall Street was a vibrant African American community in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that experienced a resurgence after race riots that occurred in 1921. Filmed between 1948 and 1952, Reverend Harold Anderson's Black Wall Street film documents many of the neighborhood's businesses including barber shops, bakers, taxi companies, jewelers, and other stores. Rev. Anderson also captured its citizens in church, at school, participating in parades, and walking around the area. The film includes footage of Richard and Pat Nixon as they campaigned in Black Wall Street. Nixon was the first vice-presidential candidate to visit the African American neighborhood.
