Book Talk: Dennis Maley “Burn Black Wall Street Burn”
June 15 : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Tuesday, June 15, Fogartyville will be hosting author and journalist Dennis Maley as he talks about his fourth book, “Burn Black Wall Street Burn”. This talk will take place at 7:00 PM.
In the spring of 1921, one of the most atrocious yet little-known events of American history took place in Tulsa, Oklahoma’s prosperous, all-black, Greenwood neighborhood when a murderous white mob burned the town of 10,000, known as Black Wall Street, to ashes.
In this work of historical fiction, longtime political journalist Dennis “Mitch” Maley keeps the emphasis on “historical” in dramatizing this historically accurate and meticulously researched depiction of the horrific events that led to one of our nation’s ugliest moments.
